Family whose mum feeds them on £3 a day spending £42 a day on snacks

A FAMILY whose mother boasts of providing them with healthy, nutritious meals for £3 a day secretly spends £294 a week on junk food. 

Eleanor Shaw makes simple but nourishing meals using only cheap, basic ingredients, which her husband and two children dutifully munch between surreptitious visits to Burger King and KFC.

18-year-old Luke Shaw said: “Mum’s a wizard at bargain meals that leave you craving something pre-packaged full of delicious trans fats.

“And she never wastes leftovers. If you don’t eat something for dinner, you’ll be throwing it away as your packed lunch the next day.

“So I’m blowing £14 a day on a Maccy Dee breakfast, Subway lunch, crisps before dinner to stave off hunger pangs then a kebab afterward to take the taste away.”

Mrs Shaw said: “We’re saving hundreds a week because of my thriftiness, which I’m selflessly documenting on a food blog to help others.

“Is that Domino’s at the door again? Why they can’t get the right house I don’t know. It’s four nights a week.”
