Fronted by TV presenter and journalist Ranvir Singh and a team of three experts – chef and nutritionist Dale Pinnock, savvy shopper Kate Hardcastle MBE and fitness consultant Tom Pitfield – the show aims to help families improve their diets, their lifestyles and their finances.
The broadcaster said: ‘At a time of rising inflation, with families feeling burned out and when weekly grocery budgets are being stretched by high prices at the checkouts – and with the UK being the most overweight country in Western Europe – Ranvir and her team will meet a new family each week, who are facing a range of issues. In each half-hour episode, the families are given an eight-week challenge, with the experts on hand to offer tips along the way.’
‘In episode one, which airs tomorrow (Thursday August 1) at 8.30pm, the team meets the Laherty family from Bury in Greater Manchester and challenge them to ditch their regular takeaway run and get an expensive chocolate habit under control.
The other families keen to kick their unhealthy habits are super spenders the Todd family from Sunderland; new parents the Vastas from Bolton, whose weight has become a serious health concern; and the Thomas family from Northamptonshire, who eat takeaways virtually every night.
In episode 2, which airs next Thursday (August 8), Ranvir and her team are in Sunderland with the Todd family, helping them to tackle their serious food spending habits with some healthy, cheap home-cooked recipes.
In this series, the families will also meet former ‘Eat, Shop, Save’ champions who have transformed their lives after taking part in previous series.
