The original poster Robyn Greenfield hit out at those who had been judgmental, saying that not everyone can afford to buy fresh food when they’re feeding a big family
‘It’s Christmas and some families can’t afford a lot. I personally cook all fresh food on Christmas.
But for some family’s this may be a bargain to feed six 6 people. Did no one ever teach some of you if you have nothing nice to say don’t say anything at all, simple?

‘Yes it’s frozen food for Christmas, get over it.’
The bargain feast includes a boneless turkey joint, stuffing balls, pigs in blankets, parsnips, sprouts and an Irish cream gateau for dessert.
The vast majority of commenters were delighted by the bargain buy and said that it would be ideal for struggling families or people who simply don’t want to spend all day slaving over the stove
And the vast majority of comments were positive with one mother commenting that it would allow her to spend more time with her kids on Christmas morning than in the kitchen.
Another added: ‘All you lot being bloody judgmental, why don’t you find someone vulnerable or a family on little income and buy this meal for them.
‘I bet they would be grateful. You obviously have a lot of money to spend on a bird.’
Others pointed out that frozen food can be just as healthy as fresh because veg is often frozen right after picking, locking in the nutrients.
