If the rising cost of living is putting pressure on your hip pocket, there are some tasty tips and recipes you can follow to help you make healthy family meals on a budget. 


Food and groceries are a big part of the family budget. Follow these tips to help you reduce your food waste and costs:

  • Use it up: Check what's in your pantry, fridge and freezer and find recipes that include the ingredients you already have.
  • Buy seasonal produce: Fruit and vegetables are cheaper and taste better when they are in season.  
  • Waste not, want not: Use leftover vegetables in soups or stir fries. Add soft fruit to smoothies or desserts.
  • Have a food budget: Stick to it when you are shopping.
  • Plan meals for the week: Make a shopping list that corresponds to your meal plan.
  • Buy imperfect produce: It's cheaper.
  • Shop by unit price: Check the price per kilogram or litre.
  • Have a meat-free meal at least once a week.
