THRIFTY MUM OF 11 UNVEILS HER TOP TIPS FOR FEEDING KIDS FOR AS LITTLE AS £12 PER PERSON, PER WEEK, FOR THREE MEALS A DAY
Savvy mum of 11 children, Joanne Webb O’Rourke, reveals she spends just £12 per person, per week, for three nutritious meals a day at Aldi and has come to the rescue of busy families with her all-time favourite budget family meal. Joanne also unveiled her ultimate tips for feeding a family during the hectic working week, including setting up a breakfast station complete with cereal dispensers and creating a weekly ‘fakeaway’ day to keep things exciting for little ones.
With the autumn school term underway, it’s been revealed that one in four parents admit they don’t have the time to plan meals, and as a result, are making the same meals every day. Almost half (46%) say they sometimes give in and let their child choose what to eat to make life easier1.
Joanne comments: “Feeding a family doesn’t have to be hard work! I make sure I stick to my top ten tips including banning daily shops and keeping key pantry products replenished – it’s all about being prepared. The kids love my healthy chicken casserole, it’s a really filling mid-week meal and can be frozen in batches.”
