View Full Version : How much for evening meal?

21-02-2010, 04:18 PM
I don't charge my full timer for meals and my other 2 mindees are only here for lunch. I've now had an enquiry for LO after pre-school 1.30-6pm and I think I would be out of pocket if I didn't charge for her evening meal. What do you think would be a reasonable amount? The other option is to charge a set daily rate that would include meals?

hi i charge £1.50 per evening meal hopw that helps my parents have never questioned the price and if they dont like it they just opt out

I charge £2.50 for lunch/dinner/tea and that is mains plus pudding.

I worked it on the basis that I only had one child and how much would it cost me?
