Next, she added a bag of chicken nuggets to the oven, and opened up some corn on the cobs to boil on the hob.

The mum-of-nine continued: “The Tilda rice is only £2 a bag in Iceland, that's quite good, and the Iceland nuggets were half price to £2.

“Give it 20 minutes and look, what lucky kids I have.”

She said the entire meal cost £7, which works out at under £1 per child.
