Watch: How much have food prices gone up?

Everyone knows we are spending more at the grocery store, but it is hard to say how much more and which items have gone up the most.

BBC Wales money editor Felicity Evans did her own bit of shopping to find out more.

Comparing the price of sugar, for example, she found consumers are now paying £1.19 for a kilogram (2.2lbs), up 50p from the average price for the same amount of sugar three years ago.

Two pints of semi-skimmed milk now cost 40p more, while a pack of frozen beef burgers is up by a whopping £1.28.

So even though the rate at which prices are rising has started to ease, it is easy to see why people are still struggling with the cost of living.
