:!: I think it's worth it for you to try to find a way to make it work. It will help you tremendously. Milk, eggs, bread, cereal, fruit/veggies... ... think about it. FOOD... lol

Try some money management then! We have to all the time. We have no money for ourselves. But her the WIC office will go and pick you up or your appt. Call your local office and see if they offer the same?

Um well you need to find out where the money's going.... You and your children shouldn't be worried about whether it not you are getting enough food.... You need to be eating more for the baby, and yourself.

Yeah there's over 200 a week just disappearing to your knowledge and here you are trying to feed a whole family on 75 a week. That's fucked up.

Try eating things with good fats then. I eat peanuts a lot and avacados. I cook with olive oil or sunflower oil.



We're blessed with FS while I'm off work. But when I am working we don't get them and our food budget is low too. Idk how we manage but we do haha. We just try to buy healthy stuff. We never have snackies or treats or anything.

Idk. I've learned to pick my battles and right now isn't the time to talk about it. I make sure the kids and dh get plenty to eat. But I tend to put myself on the back burner.

Oh no take what you can get!! Before the baby we only gott 200 and THAT alone was difficult. We still had to just eat out a few times a week to have a somewhat full tummy. Idk if its how I shop or what but it did not last lol
