Try some of our strategies to squeeze all the nutrients out of every dollar and stretch your food budget a bit further.
Nutrition on a budget
Reduce food waste
Eat root to fruit - try vegetable odds and ends in salad, pesto or stock.
Choose vegetables and wholegrains as these are packed with nutrients.
Go with the seasons
Eat with the seasons for better quality, cheaper food and reduce your food miles.
Cheaper cuts of meat can be tougher
Use these cuts for stews and cook low and slow.
Choose beans, pulses and legumes more often as your protein source.
Save time and money
Cook in bulk and freeze for later.
Teach yourself how to cook new foods to increase variety and save on pre-made options.
Use canned or frozen vegetables
So you always have vegetables at hand.
