I was tuned in to a programme the other day where loads of people where phoning in saying fresh food is cheap and foods high in fat were expensive….Sorry but I can’t remember which programme it was (probably womans hour or you and yours).
Hell no! If you want cheap food at reducing times it is often the high in fat that are reduced and cheap! It is a real struggle to get fresh fruit and veg reduced! What you get reduced is mainly ready meals. As I am on a budget I am not complaining but honestly it’s not that often you get reduced fruit and veg.
People were talking about eating what is in season and how cheap it is to eat this way. What I want to know is where they have been shopping! Not in my town that’s for sure. I know seasonal stuff should be cheaper but it just isn’t (not here anyway).
I guess most Radio 4 listeners have more money than me! Radio 4 I love you, but you need to get more people on who really have to live on a budget! Not people who think £60 + a week to spend on food is being skint!
