Not sure this is relevant since I'm in the US and you're clearly in the UK.


1. 2
2. under $5 (preferably $2)
3. 300 calories or so
4. At least 1 fruit, 1 veg. No upper limit
5. Beans, tofu, nuts or nut butter (prefer unprocessed)
6. Rice, potatoes, bread
7. Peas, corn, carrots
8. Cold but not require refrigeration. If I bought something like this then it would be for use away from home (school, picnics, daytrips, travel, etc.)
