Lunch Boxes Postscript

Just thinking (or ranting about!) lunch boxes, I realised there is another reason for not including all the school Nurse dictated snack box contents…..the cost!  Dubai’s supermarkets stock everything.  In fact, they stock more than what we are each used to back home.  Due to the diverse range of nationalities that make up Dubai, the Emirate’s supermarkets try to cater to everyone’s soft spot.  But those luxuries come at a price:

Petit Filous Yoghurts (6 pack) – almost £5 / Euros 5.30

Innocent Smoothies (6 pack) – almost £5 / Euros 5.30

Innocent Smoothies (1L) – £5+ / Euros 6.33

Raspberries  (170g/6oz) – £4 /Euros 4.85

Twiglets (6 pack) – £4.50 / Euros 5.60

Frubes – £4.60 /Euros 5.70

Organix Rice Cakes – £3 / Euros 3.70

Organix Raisins – £4 / Euros 5

Andrex Toilet Roll x 9- (not a school snack member…but just so you know the cost of these home comforts) – £7.70 / Euros/ 9.50

And yet, fags sell for 1 Euro/less than a pound for a pack of 20!  I think I need to speak to the school Nurse……
