Your January slimming just got a little bit easier - and more affordable!
Back in 2017, budget supermarket Aldi launched Slimming World-inspired ready meals, which were cheaper and contained even fewer calories than the original versions sold at Iceland. And now, the reliable retailer has added to their range with two new meal choices.
Aldi's Slim Well products are aimed at people wanting to slim down or watch their weight but who haven't got the time to prepare healthy and filling meals. Priced at £2 each, the ready meals are a third cheaper than Iceland's offerings, which cost £3 each and are still low in fat and calories.
'At Aldi, customers can feel confident that they’re getting unbeatable value without sacrificing on quality,' said Julie Ashfield, Managing Director of Buying at Aldi UK.
'We know this is particularly important in January, when shoppers are looking to spend less and eat well as they start the new year. The Slim Well meals offer healthy, easy-to-prepare dinners and with a range of dishes to choose from, something different for every night of the week.'
Anyone who's missed the summer BBQs we regularly enjoyed during last year's heatwave, can now relive those glory days with Aldi's Slim Well Smoky BBQ Chicken meal.
