The Warner Family

Episode 2 of 3

Gregg Wallace and Chris Bavin help families across the UK eat well for less. Gregg and Chris are with a family whose weekly food shopping spend is out of control.

Gregg and Chris are with a family whose weekly food shopping spend is out of control. The brand-loving Warners from Stratford-upon-Avon have a large family and an enormous food bill, but with a home renovation underway, every penny counts.

With four children and limited cooking skills, Hannah and Tim rely on pre-prepared food, whilst Hannah believes that if something is more expensive it must be better. Gregg and Chris secretly watch as they shop and see that they are being seduced by nice packaging and 2-for-1 deals, both classic shopping mistakes. However, when their spend is totalled up and they're confronted with the 17 receipts from the week before they are ready to change their ways!

Gregg and Chris make the food swaps that will hopefully save them money and all labels are removed. Yogurts are a family favourite, but is it worth paying for a top brand? Gregg visits a dairy to find out what the differences really are. The Warners have replaced their weekly takeaway with a supermarket one, but what goes into these ready meals? Chris is in the development kitchen of a factory, and is surprised by what he finds out. And dietician Lucy Jones reveals the shocking difference in the amount of sugar in jars of tomato pasta sauce.

This family have been a serious challenge for Gregg and Chris with Hannah convinced she would be able to tell a cheaper brand, but was her shock discovery when all is revealed enough to convince them they can eat well for less?
