Arrival of a baby: what budget to anticipate?
23-07-2020 | STATEC

The minimum budget to plan for meeting the basic needs of a child aged 0-6 is between 304 and 361 euros per month depending on the child's age. While the minimum budget tends to increase with age, that of an 18-month-old child is the highest, at 361 euros. This is because their food basket contains specific products that disappear for older children. Regardless of a child’s age, food takes up the biggest part of the budget.
