Sainsbury's have had to cancel their 'Feed your Family for £50' adverts. http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2124811/Sainsburys-feed-family-50-adverts-banned.html The portion sizes were questioned (too small to feed 4 adults....too much to feed one adult and 3 toddlers!) - and nowhere near enough calories. The diet was unsuited to the under 4s. And the £50 did not include 'storcupboard' ingredients....garlic, herbs, spices, oil, flour, stock (presumably from a cube/tub?....fresh stock isn't in my cupboard!), ketchup, mustard, tomato puree.... Also, extra fruit and veg was needed to bulk out meals and provide '5 a day'. Too much relaince given on 'bready' meals....toast and jam for breakfast 3 times a week...sandwiches for lunch.... Now, I don;t know about you, but I'm sure we could get together on Cookery and do healthy meals for a family of 4 at £50 a week! How much would Sainsbury's pay us to use the 'TES Cookery Forum' approved mark? I think my 3 meal offering would be.... Breakfast: Porridge (Made from oats not Reddy Brek) with dried fruit added. Banana Tea Lunch: Home made Veg and Lentil Soup (in a thermos for a packed lunch) Granary Roll Home made joghurt and fruit Dinner Home made Fishcakes Mashed Root Veggies Baked Beans Fruit Crumble. (Homemade) I haven't costed it - but it should fall into the required price bracket....a bit of foerthought needed to make the soup the day before I suppose.....and I think it's food most not-too-picky people will eat!
