Just welcomed the lovely Darla to the family, 6.5wk old Bull Terrier X Shar Pei and she is just awesome!

As its the first puppy I'm raising where I will pay for everything I am unsure as to what to go with. I also have a Bull Terrier X Whippet who is about 4.5yrs old.
I ideally do not want to spend a fortune on food and was wondering what the best value food is. A quick trip to Kmart netted some Purina Supercoat Puppy and some Pedigree puppy milk. I'm also starting to feed the older dog Purina Supercoat Adult.
Is Supercoat OK? It was $29 for 12kg which I thought was a pretty decent price as I figure I will go through about 2 bags a month once the puppy is off the puppy food. Is there something a fair bit better without being 2 or 3 times as expensive like all the others I see recommended, as I have had dogs all my life raised as per my parents on a mixture of canned, meat roll and dry food and they have all lived long full lives and been beautiful animals.
Its only after reading through all these forums that people say how bad it all is and all that jazz.
Any tips you can offer me on raising the pup would be awesome!
