Healthy eating on a budget 'one of biggest challenges'

The British Heart Foundation (BHF) has called healthy eating on a budget "one of the biggest challenges of our times" after it found more than a third of people in the UK are struggling to eat healthily due to high food prices.

Victoria Taylor, senior dietitian at the BHF, said:
