Affordable 5 a day
Back to basics
- The basics range has hundreds of affordable products. We use economical packaging, and fruit and veg that isn’t a standard shape or size.
- Free from artificial flavours and hydrogenated fats, use basics products to create delicious family meals and save money, too.
- Tinned or frozen fruit and veg can be cheaper than fresh, count towards your 5-a-day, and are handy when you don’t have time to shop.
- Beans and lentils are affordable and make soups, salads or casseroles go further.
- Cook double quantities of recipes and freeze for another day.
Shop and cook clever
- Fresh produce can be cheaper in season, so buy seasonal fruit and veg or try basics frozen red berry mix available in selected stores during the winter season.
- Use the deli, meat and fish counters to buy smaller portions and cut down on waste.
- Grate courgette into Bolognese or chilli to bulk out family dinners and help get your 5-a-day.
