VAT’s the recipe for success

We’ve heard of cooking the books, but rustling up a VAT of baby food is just ridiculous.
Andrea Rose-Love, a VAT inspector and mum to 18-month-old son Zack, has won a competition to provide one of her favourite kiddy-food recipes to Heinz.
Andrea prepares food from scratch for Zack every day, with Broccoli and cauliflower winning the competition judges’ hearts (and stomachs).
Perhaps the taxman will see fit to move Andrea onto Rusk-assessment, or her expertise in blending could come in handy with HMRC’s ‘smoothie-spotting’ brigade. ‘Remember, fruit and veg VAT free, smoothies not so’ ­ that’s what Andrea has under a magnet on her fridge, reckons TS.
