$50 for a week’s worth of dinners for a family of 4!

The Healthy Mummy’s mum of four, Sascha Farley, shares 7 amazing budget-friendly recipes that your family will love…and it’s not all mince and pasta!

Sascha is a master of budgeting and is always looking for new ways to save money while keeping her family fit, healthy and happy.

To show us how easy it is to use The Healthy Mummy app for budget-friendly, healthy meals, Sascha chose 7 recipes using the recipes that she knew all of her family would eat (as she refuses to cook multiple options each night) that are full of healthy ingredients and are super budget-friendly.

This great variety of dinner recipes are super budget friendly and nutritious, with the cost per serve ranging from $1.41 for Lentil Chilli Con Carne to a tasty Chicken and Peanut Sesame noodles at $1.84 per serve – the total amount for the 7 dinners totalling $49.08 for a family of 4 (or for Sascha, that’s a family of 6 as the little kids share a portion).
