Newcastle's top tips for parents and carers on feeding children with a low budget

As many families are facing higher food bills, and in many cases, reduced income due to the impact of coronavirus the Public Health team of Newcastle City Council have produced an online information guide (attached) and short film packed with tips, to help people plan meals


As well as ideas for easy-to-make, low-cost meal options, the information also includes price comparisons of shop-bought products compared to home-cooked food, information about foods that can be frozen to avoid waste and tips for getting children involved in preparing family meals. People can get tips on how to make their budget go further, ideas for breakfast and lunch – meals which many families may not normally eat at home - and has links to different websites and apps that offer simple, healthy recipes.
