Healthy Affordable Food! Part 1
I am often amazed at the queue of cars outside McDonalds. Did you know - I didn't - that an adult meal costs £4.59? (a Big Mac burger or Quarter Pounder, with medium fries and a drink) A kiddies meal costs £2.79 (The Happy Meal contains a main item (a hamburger or small serving of Chicken McNuggets), a side item (French fries, apple slices or salad in some areas) and a drink (milk, juice or a soft drink).
Now, if MW and I went for 'lunch' there..to the drive through...it would cost us..erm..£9.18 for basically some
chips fries, two veggie burgers and two baps and a cold drink each.
Even if we wanted to eat that menu for lunch, this is what it would cost us from the local Coop: (the nearest shop to us, and certainly not the cheapest place to buy food).
£2.50 for 900g
A portion of fries is approximately 100g, so for one person these fries would cost 27p each
