We asked Dietician Kathleen Roper to shop with us at Wal-Mart to see how many nutritious meals we could buy on the maximum benefit for a mother and two children... about 85 dollars a week.
Roper said, "I was pretty surprised actually."
Roper could buy enough for three meals a day on weekends, and dinner each night of the week.We asked her if this would be enough to satisfy three people.
"Yes," she said, "if we're talking about the free breakfast and the free lunch as a supplement to this" at school.
