HOMEWORK(英式发音,我的死穴)

"Shall we put those in the cupboard down there for later? Yeah?"

“Does bread
go in the fridge?”

For the Bruntlett family, like other families, the weekly shop is often on a budget.

“That’s what we’ve got.”

And while fresh fruit and veg is on the list, it’s meant sometimes other items are left off.

“We don't go for the brand names as what we would have.”

“No, yeah, we’ll probably go for the supermarkets’ own.”


“Own brands, yeah, yeah, definitely.”

“We’ve definitely noticed someway there’s an increase in the cost of food, particularly, I’d say food and vegetables, isn’t it?”

“Yeah, yeah, definitely.”

“And when we shot now, we do, we are very aware, obviously, that we try and eat as healthily as we can do.”

The Bruntlett’s prioritize fresh produce, but a rise in food prices of 33% over 6 years has meant for thousands of other families the healthy items are the first to go, and people are buying less food.

Figures from a new report show the average household spent per adult was £102 a month between 2005 and 2007. But this fell by £4 to £98 as the recession stroke in 2008, and fell even further by £8.70 to £93.30 from 2010 to 2012.

“The price of fruit of vegetables has grown at quicker rates than the price of processed food. And that may be one reason why we see the switch away from fresh produce, like fruits and vegetables towards processed calories.”

So as purse strings have tightened, the quality of food being bought suffered, families with young children and pensioners are worst hit. Shoppers though say there are ways around the rising cost of buying fresh.

“So I go to the market, it’s where I can go and get a little more fresh veg and fruits, because these are cheaper than what the shops, the big stores are.”

“If you look, you can get the fresh stuff still, but it’s just generally the whole bill, it’s gone considerably up.”

“No, it’s not enough payable, concentrate in earn, shopping around, looking and it isn’t there.”

Essentially, it appears we’re eating less, but eating worse. And often as for the Bruntlett’s’, eating healthily is about prioritizing, and while the recession’s being blamed this time, regardless of GDP, the concern is that our health may take even longer to recover.
