This Morning Food Shopping Segment Sparks ‘Sexist’ Debate

This Morning is known for dishing out handy tips and shopping hacks.

But it seems that one of their latest segments didn’t quite get it right – at least, according to some social media users.

The blogger is known for her savvy penny-pinching tricks, making meals for her two children on a tight budget, and sharing her hacks online through her website, Reduced Grub.

Presenter Holly Willoughby explained, ‘She claims she can feed her family of four for £20 a week without a fish finger or baked bean in sight.’

Sounds interesting and useful, no?

But the piece, which was labelled as a ‘savvy shopping guide for mums’, raised a few eyebrows.

Another agreed, ‘Savvy shopping “for mums”. Bloody sexist that…’

Hmm. Let’s make sure we remember ALL of the parents out there…
