Meal Plan Thirteen from the Tonight programme on ITV
This meal plan came about after ITV approached me and asked if I would like to be involved in making a programme helping a family to save money on their grocery bill. Consequently, the budget is quite a bit higher than our usual £1 a day, working out to just under £3 a day each. In 2019, the average per person was £5.50, so it’s still almost half of the average
The family were two adults and 3 sons, 13, 8 and 2 years old, so this plan is for 5 people
The approach was very different to usual and dictated by the requirements of the programme. Things aren’t neatly used up, so there will be lots of leftovers.
