Annunziata Rees-Mogg, the sister of Jacob Rees-Mogg and a former Brexit Party and Tory MEP, has come under fire after she gave her thoughts on food poverty.
The UK government has unveiled plans to tackle obesity in the UK, which is said to include prescribing exercise to the public, putting an end to deals on junk food and labelling calories more obviously.
However, the campaign has already come under scrutiny as healthier food is often more expensive in high street supermarkets than "junk food", which often easily and more financially viable for a family to live on.
This exact point was highlighted by reported Hollie Borland but it prompted a response from Rees-Mogg who attempted to explain why a bag of potatoes is cheaper to buy that a bag of oven chips.
Although Rees-Mogg might have thought that she was making a reasonable point (despite the fact that potatoes you buy in a supermarket aren't necessarily healthier) she soon found her notifications flooded with critical comments accusing her of completely missing the point.
@zatzi @HollieBorland @NatashaC The focus is being misplaced. It's not the cost of the ingredients (chips/potatoes)… https://t.co/mj06B0DsXY
