Aldi have a news paper advertisement stating " tone up for less pounds "

The ad is for exercise equipment - so I can see that pounds could be worthy or currency.

Should it be ' fewer ' or 'less'

Me and DH are at loggerheads...

I taught my Y6 children to check with spuds - less mash\fewer roast pots.
