How much to charge for lunch? Alicia14 Due November 30; 1 child; Ventura, CA, United States 799 posts

I babysit a little girl who is about to turn 2. Up until now her parents have sent her food with her everyday but now they want to give me money for groceries and have me feed her what my son (18 months) eats. What should I charge? I was thinking $2 a day. What do you think, more or less? At this point I'm not sure if they want me to provide the snacks as well or not. Thanks in advance!

I think the $2 - $3 range is very reasonable.

Personally, I would give 3 different options at the different price points.



Obviously, for $3 per lunch is going to get more fresh veggies, fruits and lean meats....

I also voted $3 a day I would focus on healthy organic unprocessed snacks and fresh fruits and veggies.

Lol. I would Mae up a "menu" and figure out how much it would be for each day. Then average it. Maybe make up about 10 meals.
