What the Duggar Family Eats in One Day

April 10, 2012

The Duggar family of 19 Kids and Counting has a total of 21 mouths of feed. The TODAY show visited the Duggars for breakfast and talked about the amount of food their family goes through in a single day. 

Making sure everyone is fed means bulk buying, and lots of meal planning. The Duggars spend around $3000 a month on groceries. Much of the food comes from a bulk shopping trip they do once a month, with weekly shopping trips for smaller items. 

The list below is the shopping list for just one day's worth of food for the Duggars. 

3 dozen eggs
5 lbs turkey bacon
20 biscuits
10 oranges
4 lbs of grapes
3 loaves of whole wheat bread
4 lbs of sloppy joe meat
3 lbs of green beans
3 lbs of potatoes
2 watermelons
2 family-size bags of lettuce
4 lbs of spaghetti noodles
3 loaves French bread
2 pans of brownies
1 gallon of vanilla ice cream
