$2 plus pack food for recess. Teaches the child to save up all excess $. Reward more if he/she save up all without buying unnecessary snack/things.

For me i gave him $10 for a week. If there are any CCA or after school activities I will give extra $2.


$2-3 dollars a day if kid has lunch in school so there is extra money for snack

$3? More better than not enough. But it's depends on the school canteen price

for me I'll check the price of the food at the tuckshop first before deciding

$3-$5? Depend on the pricing of the canteen?

Lower primary - $2 should be sufficient.

Around 2-3 dollars per day is fine

From 2-5 dollars is good
