SLIMMERS who fear getting bored with their diet have WW‘s exciting new meals under 400 calories to discover. The brand, which was previously known as Weight Watchers, has launched its updated range nationwide. WW’s new meals are guaranteed to be under 400 calories There’s thirteen meals to choose from and each meal costs just £2.50 at Asda, Morrisons and Nisa stores from this month. That’s cheaper than Slimming World meals at Iceland that cost between £3 and £3.50. However, Slimming World’s wide selection of meals rivals WW and includes a delicious-looking char sui pork noodles for £3.50 as well as this chicken and chorizo-style sausage paella for £3. Alternatively, LighterLife meals and products cost between £2.75 and £2.99 at Superdrug. There is less variety but still some delicious offerings such as spaghetti bolognese and blueberry pancakes. Slenderplan meals, also at Superdrug, may be the cheapest we found at £1.25 each but dieters are limited to a bland choice of tomato or chicken soup.
