Feed your Family for £50 with Sainsburys?

by - Wednesday, May 18, 2011

When I first saw those TV adverts suggesting we could feed a family of four for £50, I naturally assumed this meant a week's worth of evening meals only. So it did come as a pleasant surprise to find this cost includes breakfasts and lunches too. For a whole week!

Sainsburys have developed an efficient, cost-effective meal plan and recipe guide to cover a week's worth of meals for the whole family to enjoy together. The plan does require sticking to portion sizes and does not include any snacks between meals, though undoubtedly it is a cost effective means of feeding the family on a budget.

Not all of the recipes appeal to my family personally, though there's nothing too OTT in there which they would particularly turn their nose up at! It makes me happy to know that in this climate of budgeting and moneysaving, even the big name supermarkets are offering a helping hand to families feeling the pinch.

I'll definitely be looking out for future meal plans from Sainsburys for more thrifty meal ideas and would love to see if the idea catches on with other supermarkets too.
