Britain’s biggest family share savvy food shopping tips for feeding 22 children

We all know how pricey it can get feeding a lot of people, so imagine a family of 24…

Sue and Noel Radford, from Lancashire, are the parents of the biggest family in the UK.

Since the household hit the headlines, it's been known the Radford family don't rely on benefits.

Instead, they support themselves with the proceeds of Noel's bakery which is located in their hometown Morecambe.

And the family share tips for "cooking on a budget" on their YouTube channel, where there are 229,000 subscribers.

So how else does Sue, 45, and Noel, 49, manage to feed the mouths of so many children while keeping the food bills down?

Speaking to Closer, Sue said: "We don't really have any fussy eaters, we cook one evening meal and they have to eat what's in front of them.

"We are lucky that we don't have fussy eaters because there's no way we would be messing about cooking two, three meals of an evening.

"We buy in bulk things like wash powder, toilet rolls and we shop about for things and see what's on offer. It's all about planning and being savvy.

"I just go out and do a shop every day which saves me a lot of money. We also buy things from our local veg man, and we use our local butcher as well because we find it's a lot cheaper."

Noel often posts videos on YouTube showing how he whips up cheap meals for the family.

Also the parents often shop around to look for the best deals online.

Sue previously said: "It's worth making sure you get the best deals on your utilities and take advantage of voucher deals where you can."

The dad added: "Our shopping bill is around £250 a week, but we're pretty lucky to get good deals through a butcher whom we use in the bakery and a local veg delivery man."

He concluded: "We'll get through two big bags of apples a day, eight bananas and a bag of oranges."

And when it comes to going out, Sue avoids splashing out on expensive restaurants by making a packed lunch.

She explained: "We make up loads of sandwiches and just take a packed lunch with us because if we eat out anywhere it can be really pricey."

Sue and Noel are parents to Chris, 31, Sophie, 26, Chloe, 25, Jack, 23, Daniel, 21, Luke, 20, Millie, 19, Katie, 17, James, 16, Ellie, 15, Aimee, 14, Josh, 13, Max, 11, Tillie, 10, Oscar, eight, Casper, eight, Hallie, five, Phoebe, four, Archie, three, Bonnie, one, and Heidie, who was born in April.
