Why this year's Christmas dinner is 16% more expensive

The cheapest festive meal for a British family of eight is some 16 per cent more expensive than last year, according to Good Housekeeping. The organisation, which has measured prices at the same time for nine years, says the 11 basic ingredients for the big day have never been more expensive. However, they say it is still possible to put together a turkey feast for eight for as little as £23.54 - £2.94 per head. That is up from £19.82 - £2.48 - a head last year. The organisation measured the cost of the products across 10 of Britain's biggest food stores. Marks & Spencer was the only one to show a fall. The annual study suggests the general increase has been driven by a big rise in the cost of fresh vegetables, specifically potatoes, Brussels sprouts, carrots and parsnips.
