Towards the end it says, "...Yale researchers looked at the breakfasts of children (ages 5-12) at a summer camp. Half of the kids were given a sweetened cereal, and the other half was given a low-sugar option. The children who ate the low-sugar option averaged one serving or one cup of cereal. The children who ate the sweetened option averaged two servings or two cups of cereal. They rated the taste of both options equally high. So children in this study were just as satisfied with the "healthier" cereal- and ate half as much."
So an obvious way to save money is to buy healthy cereal instead of sugary cereals! Kids will eat half as much and be satisfied. (Plus if they must eat something else, fruit is cheaper than cereal anyway.)
Of course, there are other healthy breakfast options?
I got another one... Instead of frozen or regular potatoes use... Sweet Potatoes... MMMMM... Good!Spray with a little Cooking spray,Season to your liking. I like garlic powder, and pepper.Some I've heard, even put on a little cinnamon, But that's not my cup of tea!I'm going to try a little chili powder next time , though. I love me some spice!Turnips sound good,never thought of using them as a sub for fries. How do you season them?
To be happy and healthy in body, mind and spirit ,and set the best example for them, so that my children will be too. That's what I aspire to., to be the best ME I can be!

my best substitute to save money and calories was popcorn instead of buying it already made with butter and nuts etc.or cooking it in a heavy pan of melted butter i invested in a popcorn machine(10 €)and eat and serve it direct from the popcorn machine only butter,salt suger or anything.even the kids prefer it that way now.saves alot of time,money,calories and washing heavy buttery pans.
