Eat Well for Less? – 22 July 2021 – 22/7/2021 – Thursday – BBC

The Macbeth Family
Series 7

Gregg Wallace and Chris Bavin are in Windsor with single mum Holly, who has her hands full looking after her two sons, Spencer, 16, and Fletcher, 11. Caring for Spencer, who has cerebral palsy, leaves Holly little time to cook, and as a result the family have become dependent on microwavable ready meals. Whilst Spencer is happy to eat most foods, Fletcher who has recently been diagnosed with autism, is fussier. He regularly skips meals and, like his mum, relies on sugary snacks to get him through the day. It’s time for this family’s diet to have a nutritional overhaul. Can Gregg and Chris get the family cooking tasty food from scratch and tempt them away from their favourite big brands in order to save enough for a much-needed holiday?

Gregg teaches Holly three simple egg recipes she can quickly whip up for the boys after school, whilst Chris gets Fletcher baking breakfast muffins to set him up for the day and hopefully reduce his snacking. A group from the Wiltshire Wildlife Trust test a range of reduced-sugar hot chocolate drinks to decide which one they prefer, whilst Chris takes a closer look at how some supermarkets are attempting to reduce their single-use plastic.

About Eat Well for Less?

This series addresses the issue of rising food prices, looking at how they are affecting both finances and eating habits. Is it possible to eat on a lower budget without compromising on quality? Exploring two theories are master chef Gregg Wallace and award-winning greengrocer Chris Bavin. Gregg and Chris travel around the UK meeting busy families struggling to eat well on a budget. They watch what the families buy and eat over the course of a week, and then offer suggestions on how they can change their habits to be healthier, cut food waste, save money, and enjoy conflict free meal times.

This show is broadcast on BBC, also known as the British Broadcasting Corporation.
