Zurich living cost

I know there are a load of Zurich living cost threads, but the ones similar to my question are old, so please bear with me and thanks in advance for any concrete info, particularly if anyone is in a similar situation.

Scenario

* offspring will do Lehre in Zurich

* the following will be paid for by yours truly:
- accommodation and nebenkosten
- ZVV pass
- mobile phone subscription (including unlimited data)
- health insurance
- mandatory study materials (if not covered by the company)

* ideally offspring manages the following:
- food
- clothing
- basic going-out money
- electronics and other stuff if they break it

So I cover the big ticket, fixed cost items, they manage the smaller stuff where they have some choice (i.e. if they blow their budget on McDonalds every day, bye bye new jeans). If starvation looms they can come home and eat.

So the question is how much (per month) does their part require?
