A savvy mum has showed off how much food you can buy for just over a tenner.
Sharing the snap, she wrote: "We needed milk and I had a tenner and some change.
"Was going to pop to the local shop, which would have meant I got milk and a few odd treats for the money.
"I decided to nip to Aldi instead and just look what £10.16 gets you!"
The photo she shared shows a stack of frozen pizzas, four pints of milk, a loaf, margarine, a couple of packs of biscuits, instant noodles, apples, some chocolate bars and a pack of vegetables.
The issue of food prices has been thrust into the headlines this week, after parents shared the meagre food parcels they'd been given as part of the free school meals available during lockdown.
One dad told LADbible his kids' food parcel - that was supposed to amount to £30 - had items worth just £7.20, including a cup of undated tuna.
Nick, who is completing is teacher training and his partner who sadly lost her job at the beginning of the pandemic are full-time carers to their two disabled daughters.
The couple said the food hampers were a 'lifeline' during the pandemic to ensure their two eldest kids - 12 and 15 - could tuck into balanced and nutritious meals.
However, they were shocked when opening their parcel to find it contained six potatoes, two trays of dry pasta, four tins of beans, a cup of tuna and a single yellow pepper - totting up to just £6.02 if purchased from Tesco.
After complaining to the kids' school, the family were sent a bag of 10 apples, bringing the total spent on the hamper up to £7.20.
Schools are able to claim up to £15 for each eligible free school meals pupil for the packages from the government.
Speaking to LADbible, dad-of-five Nick said: "We got a phone call from the school to say that it was ready and to come and collect it. I didn't say anything to the school as we collected it, just sort of scratched my head at how it was presented and that it's not labelled, and it's in a cup.
"I was also thinking I'm not quite sure how we're going to create a substantial and proper meal for them, other than one day of jacket potatoes.
"When I opened it up I just felt really demoralised."
