Back to school with Californian Mum in London and Lidl

Uniform and food from Lidl

In this sponsored collaboration with Lidl, we teamed up with Mumsnet blogger Elfa to see if she could save money on her weekly shop and fuel her family with healthy breakfasts and after-school snacks, while her daughter put Lidl's own-brand school uniform to the test. Watch the video below to see how they got on.
