Less haste, less waste and a smaller waist

UK households can be healthier and could save up to £1,500 a year by simply planning their weekly food shop, a new Change4Life survey has revealed.

It shows that simple steps such as writing a shopping list and planning your weekly meals can save your purse pounds and your waist lbs too.  The findings come ahead of a new Change4Life campaign that will encourage affordable healthy eating in the new year.

The survey asked 20 households to record what they ate and drank over a two week period. In the first week they ate and shopped as normal but in the second week they were provided with recipes and handy tips from Change4Life to help them plan healthier meals and shop smartly.
