In this house, we have people who are trying to gain weight, people trying to lose weight, those who want a more healthy diet and those who think that the only good food comes out of a packet and definitely isn't made by Mum. Some people each many more than five portions of fruit and veg a day whereas other members of the household struggle to make three, I'm ashamed to say.

We have a toddler, a pre-schooler, a middle years child, two teenagers, two adults and an elderly person.
Me-well, I'm confused about what is "healthy" and where to find proper resources about this. Is butter healthy or is it too full of saturated fat? Should we aim for a high carbohydrate or high fat diet? Is the Mediterranean diet really the best and what is the evidence for various components of this? I'm sure that I should know most of this but I don't.
Plus, two more things
-I only want to cook one main meal that will do for everyone
-It all has to be in budget. That was £85 per week including food and cleaning stuffs but has crept up to £100 per week usually plus £10 extra with food inflation and growing children.
Not sure this is possible. Perhaps, I will be brave and post my monthly meal plan-I'm sure it isn't right but then, perhaps, it can't be right.
