You left out vital information, sir.
How old are your children? This would determine their needs. For instance, a child of less than 1 would require more financial attention than a child of 8.
Where are you based? This would determine cost of living. The cost of living in the North is far cheaper than the cost of living in the East.
Finally, I would advise that you buy things in bulk. Buying in bulk is cheaper and saves you from this overly and ever increasing inflation rate. If your children are youngsters, buy diaper in bulk. There are people who sell cereals in bulk too ( like painter of milk, cornflakes, golden morn, bournvita, oat and so on) and even pasta too. Find one in your location and buy these things in painter as against tins. Then again, you still have to mise usage so excess availability is not mistaken for excess wastage.
Buy rice, beans (store in dry jerry cans and pour some dry pepper and bay leaves), palm oil and vegetable oil in bulk. Buy beans when it is cheap(December) and palm oil when its cheaper too.
Eat Apples when they are in season. Switch to Mangoes if the former is out of season. Eat yams when in season, switch to Irish and sweet potatoes if the aforementioned happens.
If electricity is stable, cook three to four variety of soups, stews, sauces and store in the freezer. With a little tweak, each serving would taste better and fresh.
Buy ugu when in season, air dry and store for when it would become expensive. Do same for Afang, pepper, ewedu, okra...
Process tomato mix and store in a cool dry pantry for use when it becomes expensive.

Guy somethings here are exaggerated but to be fair 25k a week is okay and your wife is mismanaging, hope your wife won't kill you one day. What works for me might not work for you, study her and her circle.
Like me I use to have everything in the house carton of fish and turkey, and foods stuff but my wife will give everything out in few days no food stuff then I had to change but it's costing me.

Do you know why she is jobless? Or are you unaware that some men make their wives quit their jobs/businesses after marriage?
There are many reasons why she is not bringing any money to the table.
@Headbanger, why doesn't your wife earn any money?

That 25k is even more than enough sibthtbyou guys can plan for other things
Why not just have a heart to heart talk with your wife and see how she can help you manage things
Doesn't she contribute anything, if yes then she can add whatever she needs to increase the allowance

I have setup two businesses for her which she mismanaged, but am trying to push her into importation again to see what she will be able to make out of it. I have lost several millions in setting up busineses for her without sucess, most time I even try marketing for her.

Headbanger:Maybe you are setting up what you want, not what she can do.
Not everyone will understand the nitty-gritty of importation and a lot of times, you are importing goods for a specific target market.
Sometimes, you make more money from the easy, everyday buy and sell.
You can set up a retail or wholesale shop where she sells everyday items. Drinks, packaged foods, food spices, sugar, laundry agents, hygiene products etc.
Do your market research. She can buy from distributors and warehouses located close to/within the markets and sell as a wholesaler. She will just need to be in a good location with foot traffic. Everyday, simple items.
Forget all these online talk of importation. If you can do without the pressure of forex, please do without it.

God bless you plenty plenty for this, I salute you.

50k cant buy all you listed above nah.
Rice,oil, spaghetti, indomie and beans alone will almost finish the 50k.
|Re: How Much Feeding Allowance Is Sufficient For A Family Of Five by yemmit90: 7:32pm On Jun 10|
@op, except we are just deceiving ourselves, if you want to eat better and good, that amount is not too much for a family of 5.
Even if you buy things in bulk, you will still need to spend around 3k - 5k for a soup that will finish in 3 days. Calculate that in a month and remove from 100k. Remember she will still get eggs and provisions for the children out of the money.
Things are just too expensive in Nigeria.
