Feeding a family of 2-5 can be expensive; now imagine feeding a family of 22. The Radford’s are recognized as Britain’s biggest family, and their feeding expenses have somewhat become a thing people have shown to be concerned about. But it turned out, the family from Lancashire does have a fantastic cook on a budget. 

49-Year-Old Noel Radford has topped the headlines after revealing how he feeds his children at 30p per head. The dad-of-22 kids with his wife Sue make 27 fishcakes to serve with salad – all to keep his family happy and satisfied.

In a now-viral clip on the family’s YouTube channel, Noel used 2.5 kg of potatoes, three eggs, one onion, two tins of salmon from Asda, some breadcrumbs, a bag of frozen sweetcorn, flour, and oil for frying. ‘We do get asked quite a lot of times how we manage to feed everyone as cheaply as we can.’

‘So we’re going to share some ideas of what we like to do and what the kids like to eat. Today I am just going to show you how to make some fishcakes, which are quite cheap and easy to do.’ Noel said in the clip.

The dad added: ‘I do some adult-sized ones and little kiddy sized ones. There’s nothing worse than when you’re a little kiddy, and you’ve got this massive big portion of food on your plate. And you’re expected to eat it. It just outfaces them, so I make some little tiny ones.’ As seen in the clip, Noel later added egg, breadcrumbs, flour to the fishcakes before frying them for a couple of minutes. He plated the friend fishcakes with lettuce, cucumber, and tomatoes.

‘From my costing, they cost about 30p each to make. I got 27 out of it. You could make them cheaper’

‘From my costing, they cost about 30p each to make. I got 27 out of it. You could make them cheaper; I suppose you used slightly cheaper fish, sardines, or something like that. You can make them, however you like; you can add herbs and put some cheese within the crumbs to spruce them. But this is our version of a fishcake in the Radford house.’ Noel stated.
