I've gotten quite a few questions about how many does my meal plan feed and how does that go along with the shopping list. I thought I'd write it all out here, so hopefully this will help clear up any questions. All my breakfasts, lunches and snacks are portioned for just me, unless otherwise noted. All dinners are portioned for my family of six (two adults and four kids aged 10, 8, 4 and 2). Even though my kids are young they are big eaters.
