My Money Week continued: Planning a meal

Discuss what a good balanced meal looks like. You could use this interactive site.

Follow the discussion points on this PDF - There are different families that need a meal planned for them. 
Once the children have created a list of foods for their family - ask them to look up on the internet how much they would cost. Add up the cost of the meal. (Avoid them choosing excessive amounts and keep it a realistic meal - it's not a party feast!)

Finally - if time - tell them the family only has £5... How can the meal be adapted to keep within this budget?
