Wicklow County Council have produced a poster outlining how the convenience alone on 5 basic items (porridge, rice, carrots, lettuce and pineapple) can cost over €40! In addition to the cost there is the fact that convenience usually means more packaging and prepped fruit and veg often going off faster. Use the “shopping cost per kg” with households.
