The pink tax strikes again! Girls cost £30,000 MORE to raise than boys – and experts say it’s all down to clothes and makeup
They say little girls are made of sugar and spice but it seems they are also made of money – and lots of it.
It has emerged that girls cost a staggering £30,000 – more than the average UK annual salary – to raise than boys.
Experts found the cost of raising a child from birth until the age of 18 came to £79,176 for a boy and £108,884 for a girl – a difference of £29,708.
Real research? Or just a reason to mention a price comparison website in the press?
The study, by MoneySuperMarket.com, found it was girls’ clothes, toiletries and makeup that weighed most heavily on their parents’ wallets.
