Jesus - how is that a meal?
Well it is for those getting child tax credits rather than a free course of child focused home economics
CTC £53.46 a week, dinner at Coop per week £35 = £18.46 for a bottle (or cheapo 2) of spirits...and thats the weekly rate for 1 child before a single parent in social housing gets passported housing and council tax subsidy.
Child Tax Credits - Tory and Labour bankrupting the nation long before the EU copped the blame.
Education removes child poverty not state financial & processed food dependency.
I would not eat any of that junk.
Wow you really hate the working poor. I'm sure there's an example here or there of people spending such bens on booze but I know plenty of working parents, especially single mums, who rely on these credits to get by and don't squander it in that manner. The tax credits system was recently reformed by George Osborne and is less generous with benefit tapering away faster too.

At the end of the day, people on these credits are working and contributing to the economy (and society) and the tax credits bring them up to a liveable income. The alternative being 100% dependency on benefits if you prefer out-of-work benefits, so tax credits work out cheaper for the govt, provide a better income for the credits recipients (thus incentivising working) and the child(ren) will grow up in a household seeing their parent(s) work for (at least part) of a living - this has long-term benefits for avoiding the multi-generational unemployed family trap where children of the long-term unemployed themselves become unemployed.

A single parent will get a 25% council tax discount, as will ANY household where there is only 1 eligible adult in the household whether they work or not and irrespective of their tax credit status.

On the actual deal - hot from me. No, I wouldn't eat that as a 'meal' (far too much carb, salt and sugar) but it's all freezeable and the separate elements can all be used as such.

Right, I'm off down bargain booze to spend my giro on 2 bottles of white lightning and some scratchcards.

Hate? The country is in debt due to a 1950s Welfare system and tweaks like child tax credits and housing benefit etc, we also have low wages because paying for children means the 16+ job market is now oversubscribed, its meeting maturity at 25 years (with most them having their own kids by 25 and child tax credits generation 2) and it will cause mass unemployment and a recession.


Simply give every school a 50% bonus of CTC at £1500 extra per child and have before and after school clubs between 8-8pm and work upto 11 hours Mon - Fri even on minimum wage and work your ass off to get YOUR child out of poverty and yourself off any benefits so this country can save money on DWP, Tax and local authority budgets AND staff costs to administer so we can give the disabled and sick and carers a basic rate of 40 hours x minimum wage so they too can get out of poverty and rent social housing at minimum £100pm not high social rents to subsidise Housing staff wages.


The Tories and Labour arestuck in the 1950's social system tweaking it to high expense not high standards for all whilst both have outsourced government depts contracts that costs everyone more, not less.



8-8 healthy food and financial and moral education ontop of the basics and stop repeating **** that does not work generation to generation, its poor parenting to feed your children crap like the coop £5 meal deal, even as a *cough* 'treat'.


You educate and provide FREE school/childcare support to get a first generation child out of poverty (not education charges: Lib Dems) not create financial dependency generations ongoing.



Enjoy your pish drink, Single Barrel Jack Dans here ;)

You're right that I know very little about child tax credits, and I can assure you that it has no impact on child poverty, but I am still struggling to decipher your posts and get your all of your points.

'CTC £53.46 a week, dinner at Coop per week £35 = £18.46 for a bottle (or cheapo 2) of spirits' isn't a coherent sentence.

I also don't believe that this deal is solely available to single parents on benefits, as far as I am aware it's also available to students, bachelors, women, men, even pensioners.

Yes, it's not the healthiest food in the world, but as a one off treat it's probably better than getting a takeaway and much cheaper.

Its not food, it's processed gunk full of chems and nasties...good for you balancing it out but you really arent, my balance is to buy 2 x sweet potato wedges with bbq sauce at Asda for £3 and serve with Extra Special 100% meat burgers (£3 for 8 ) and £1 salad bag, £2.50 a main 'large ploughmans' meal - with 6 burgers, one sweet potato packet left and loads of salad for whatever in the week.

Defo worth £7 all in ;)

Enjoy anyway :)

I bought the co op deal from a couple of months ago. I basically had four meals out of it, balancing it with veg and whatnot. Lasted me a while, and didn't cost much at all. I'm not saying it's healthy, but anyone who's planning on having the whole lot in one meal isn't exactly looking after their health to begin with!

True, you think a co-operative would know better, I'm sure if they actually had COOP Healthcare the chief exec would be castrating the Retail division management lol


The point of food is energy and health, people need to re-establish their connection with food not the processed gunk packaged and marketed as food.


Shame on the coop selling out like a Maccas Meal Deal, M&S actually have healthy options and Tesco minimal but some at least, thats just gunk for £5 that probably adds 5 lbs haha

seaniboy, you mention shame on you, however, if you have ever worked in food retail, guessing you probably haven't, you would know that junk food is the food that sells! People as a general rule want pizzas, crisps, chocolate, fizzy and alcohol from a local convenience store.. there are precious few who frequent a convenience store for free from.. heck even salad.

There is a reason we have a fast food "restaurant" on every corner and not a health and well-being store.

It just make smart business sense if they pull a profit or at a minimum break even for the additional footfall and in turn additional purchases either via impulse or lazyness as to not wanting to visit another store.

I've been higher management in food and food retail...I've seen and tasted it all and rejected such 'food' because it is not food, it is processed gunk with little benefit but filling a hole and expanding a waistline. But them shareholders as you say are very happy with their private healthcare ;)

Funnily enough they're not fresh, but I'm a biochemist so I kind of enjoy making frankenstein's monster:

I grow one sweet potato sweet potato, drizzle with water, white sugar, tomato paste, touch of hickory smoked yellow and red pepper, dash of vinegar, some molasses sugar syrup, cornflour, granular salt, onion powder, garlic purée, cumin, paprika, then a final drizzle of rapeseed oil. Bob's yer uncle.

Only thing fresh is the potato, but it's amazing people will believe anything these days, especially the know-it-alls who often know less than anyone else in a cruel trick of fate (I don't believe in fate, but you know what I mean :))

Thats not fresh ingredients, the plant you refer to is your pantry...the trick of fate is in your head, its not a plant you have ;)


Biochemistry like healthcare is in its infancy, for as much as we know in 100 years we know very little about the human body and its chemical interactions on every cell and molecular level - you are right though know-it-alls who often know less than anyone else in a cruel trick of fate is exactly what your degree field is in, the minimal we know about the human body and its processes, a degree in something where most is unknown does not give the right to preach you are a god and others are less worthy.

Try a on the ground, reality we call it (not guesswork in the sky for the little you know from a relatively new genre in comparison with civilization as a whole) a nursing home and a change of food supplier from mainly fresh to one thats cheaper and more chemical processed and contented and watch your residents health en mass over a few months, for the sake of £15 per head per week diminish generally with a unusual unexplained higher death rate than ever known on site over a 3 month period, not guesswork, fact.


I look forward to your nobel prize, just like every biochemist degree holder gone before :)

Its not food, it's processed gunk full of chems and nasties...good for you balancing it out but you really arent, my balance is to buy 2 x sweet potato wedges with bbq sauce at Asda for £3 and serve with Extra Special 100% meat burgers (£3 for 8 ) and £1 salad bag, £2.50 a main 'large ploughmans' meal - with 6 burgers, one sweet potato packet left and loads of salad for whatever in the week.
Defo worth £7 all in ;)
Enjoy anyway :)
Yeah I do love the BBQ sauce plants on my allotment, pure unprocessed BBQ sauce every time. None of this processed gunk for me!
How did you get all the fresh ingredients to grow on one plant ?
Funnily enough they're not fresh, but I'm a biochemist so I kind of enjoy making frankenstein's monster:
I grow one sweet potato sweet potato, drizzle with water, white sugar, tomato paste, touch of hickory smoked yellow and red pepper, dash of vinegar, some molasses sugar syrup, cornflour, granular salt, onion powder, garlic purée, cumin, paprika, then a final drizzle of rapeseed oil. Bob's yer uncle.
Only thing fresh is the potato, but it's amazing people will believe anything these days, especially the know-it-alls who often know less than anyone else in a cruel trick of fate (I don't believe in fate, but you know what I mean :))
Thats not fresh ingredients, the plant you refer to is your pantry...the trick of fate is in your head, its not a plant you have ;)
Biochemistry like healthcare is in its infancy, for as much as we know in 100 years we know very little about the human body and its chemical interactions on every cell and molecular level - you are right though know-it-alls who often know less than anyone else in a cruel trick of fate is exactly what your degree field is in, the minimal we know about the human body and its processes, a degree in something where most is unknown does not give the right to preach you are a god and others are less worthy.
Try a on the ground, reality we call it (not guesswork in the sky for the little you know from a relatively new genre in comparison with civilization as a whole) a nursing home and a change of food supplier from mainly fresh to one thats cheaper and more chemical processed and contented and watch your residents health en mass over a few months, for the sake of £15 per head per week diminish generally with a unusual unexplained higher death rate than ever known on site over a 3 month period, not guesswork, fact.
I look forward to your nobel prize, just like every biochemist degree holder gone before :)


Sorry but I literally lol'd at this: "Try a on the ground, reality we call it (not guesswork in the sky for the little you know from a relatively new genre in comparison with civilization as a whole) a nursing home and a change of food supplier from mainly fresh to one thats cheaper and more chemical processed and contented and watch your residents health en mass over a few months"

Hey everyone forget control studies and actual science! Let's give seaniboys 'on the ground reality' (backed by civilisation!) a go and see health improve!

Also the idea that everyone involved in science is after a nobel prize. again, lol

A one off meal like this deal is no problem at all, I hate having to see people here defend it. Shall we all point to your 100 PERCENT red meat burgers and warn you of your cancer risk?

Hot deal! Love the co-op meal deals, for a fiver you can't go wrong.
My son loves them too, he's nearly 3!
Can't wait to tell him we are having pizza tommorow <3 rather than Confit of salmon with new potato & crab crush & dill drizzle! oO
If they would substitute new potato for chicken goujon, this veggie would be in! A lack of veggie option is what I don't get about this promotion (every time it's on).

Jesus - how is that a meal?
Well it is for those getting child tax credits rather than a free course of child focused home economics
CTC £53.46 a week, dinner at Coop per week £35 = £18.46 for a bottle (or cheapo 2) of spirits...and thats the weekly rate for 1 child before a single parent in social housing gets passported housing and council tax subsidy.
Child Tax Credits - Tory and Labour bankrupting the nation long before the EU copped the blame.
Education removes child poverty not state financial & processed food dependency.
I would not eat any of that junk.
What?

Coming from a single parent house; I probably had a better upbringing than you; my mother ensured there was always a roof over my head and food on the table - any additional luxuries I purchased myself. Which is how I have learnt to be money savvy - now I own one house and will be purchasing my second soon.

Wow you really hate the working poor. I'm sure there's an example here or there of people spending such bens on booze but I know plenty of working parents, especially single mums, who rely on these credits to get by and don't squander it in that manner. The tax credits system was recently reformed by George Osborne and is less generous with benefit tapering away faster too.
At the end of the day, people on these credits are working and contributing to the economy (and society) and the tax credits bring them up to a liveable income. The alternative being 100% dependency on benefits if you prefer out-of-work benefits, so tax credits work out cheaper for the govt, provide a better income for the credits recipients (thus incentivising working) and the child(ren) will grow up in a household seeing their parent(s) work for (at least part) of a living - this has long-term benefits for avoiding the multi-generational unemployed family trap where children of the long-term unemployed themselves become unemployed.
A single parent will get a 25% council tax discount, as will ANY household where there is only 1 eligible adult in the household whether they work or not and irrespective of their tax credit status.
On the actual deal - hot from me. No, I wouldn't eat that as a 'meal' (far too much carb, salt and sugar) but it's all freezeable and the separate elements can all be used as such.
Right, I'm off down bargain booze to spend my giro on 2 bottles of white lightning and some scratchcards.
Hate? The country is in debt due to a 1950s Welfare system and tweaks like child tax credits and housing benefit etc, we also have low wages because paying for children means the 16+ job market is now oversubscribed, its meeting maturity at 25 years (with most them having their own kids by 25 and child tax credits generation 2) and it will cause mass unemployment and a recession.
Simply give every school a 50% bonus of CTC at £1500 extra per child and have before and after school clubs between 8-8pm and work upto 11 hours Mon - Fri even on minimum wage and work your ass off to get YOUR child out of poverty and yourself off any benefits so this country can save money on DWP, Tax and local authority budgets AND staff costs to administer so we can give the disabled and sick and carers a basic rate of 40 hours x minimum wage so they too can get out of poverty and rent social housing at minimum £100pm not high social rents to subsidise Housing staff wages.
The Tories and Labour arestuck in the 1950's social system tweaking it to high expense not high standards for all whilst both have outsourced government depts contracts that costs everyone more, not less.
8-8 healthy food and financial and moral education ontop of the basics and stop repeating **** that does not work generation to generation, its poor parenting to feed your children crap like the coop £5 meal deal, even as a *cough* 'treat'.
You educate and provide FREE school/childcare support to get a first generation child out of poverty (not education charges: Lib Dems) not create financial dependency generations ongoing.

Some elements are not fit for purpose, but I guess that is why there's been a great deal of reform in that area with the cap, the so-called 'bedroom tax' and bringing several benefits together as the Universal Credit, as well as withdrawing child benefits to the higher paid. Yes, keeping schools open all day and using them as breakfast and after-school clubs not a bad idea and plenty of examples of that - not as sure about making people work a 55hr week and if they go straight from that to single parenting at home they'll die of exhaustion before too log oO
Also, it wouldn't work for parents of younger kids, so you'd need to think about an alternative there - can have a 3-4yr old in school club for 11hrs/day. Whilst these clubs could teach the kids home economics and other handy things, I'm not sure if the costs would add up and this would actually represent and improvement over part-time working on tax credits, with the parent providing the care and breakfast/dinner and bring their kid(s) up. Obviously there'd need to be the jobs too, and if the market is already saturated as you said, how is making all those extra people fulltime+parttime (40+15hrs a week) going to work? Yes, there'd be jobs in pre- and post- school clubs, but many of those would come at the expense of similar childcare jobs already being offered. Would these new clubs only be for parents currently receiving tax credits? Otherwise such clubs could be swamped with kids of parents who currently pay and see a chance to get a freebie and save themselves £1000s/year - if so will those parents be charged?

The whole problem of benefits and benefits reform is that it is a can of worms, any change has a knock-on effect.
