Eat Well for Less TV Programme
Eat Well for Less is a new TV programme that launches next Thursday on BBC1 in the UK. It's not really the sort of programme I tend to watch as most of the show participants are spending a fortune on food and so there's nothing new for me to learn there. However, I caught the presenters being interviewed on the news this morning and they showed a quick clip of the programme.
The presenters of Eat Well for Less are MasterChef judge Gregg Wallace and greengrocer Chris Bavin. Staggeringly, the first family they help is a family of four living in Lancashire, who spend a wallet-busting £13,000 on food each year!! For many of us, that's more than a year's salary.
£13,000 divided by four people is about £9 per person per day. I wouldn't spend that much if I were on a holiday and eating out in a restaurant once! Never mind, every person, every day! So I'm intrigued to discover what they manage to spend their money on.
In the clip I saw of the programme, the family were out shopping - and spent £150, yet when the presenters checked their fridge and cupboards, they were already full of food.
For me it's like car-crash TV watching the way some people waste so much money on food - probably the same people bleating that the cost of living's too much!
So, it should be good entertainment at least. Eat Well for Less starts on Thursday 29 January 2015.
