Help kids learn about how much it costs to feed them by giving them this challenge.
- Ask kids how much they think it costs to buy the groceries for just one meal.
- Have them decide on what's for dinner and have them make a list of the necessary ingredients. Dinner much include a vegetable and main dish. Dessert, drinks and appetizers are optional.
- Take them shopping. Give them a calculator and have them find all of the items in the store and add them all up. Do they meet their budget?
- Have them help make dinner (and clean up)!
- Bon appetite.
