FEEDING your family can be expensive if you are on a big day out, so spare a thought for mum-of-12 Alicia Dougherty.

The busy mum showed what her bumper brood eats on a typical day in New York – and there is a staggering amount of food.

In a TikTok clip on her @doughertydozen page, Alicia said: “Here’s what my 12 kids ate today. Day two in New York City.

“We got Liberty bagels for breakfast.”

Next they headed to McDonald's and Alicia showed a whole table covered in Happy Meals, fries and drinks.

Alicia, who has adopted some of her kids, previously opened up about her large family.

She said: "Our adopted twins and biological son are all born in 2014 and in second grade and have been raised as triplets most of their lives.

"Don’t tell them they’re not triplets or they will tear you apart."

Alicia previously told how she'd been trolled for her mammoth brood but ignored it.

She said: "People keep trolling on my videos that they hate our smiles. I guess I’m biased but I think they’re all 100 percent.

"Happiness comes from knowing we are worthy of being our true, authentic selves.

"We see the negativity. But we brush it off.

"I promise you, we are good."

"I did not get apples we're going to go apple picking for those later. I did get produce including 25 bananas.

"Some snacks including 191 packs of chips. Bread for the week, a few boxes of cereal.

"Dairy for the week including 14lbs of cheese, lunchables, coffee, some canned goods, meat including 12.5lb chicken. 6lb of pasta and a few random things and that's all for today!"

In a 2018 interview with People, Alicia and Josh explained that all six of their adopted kids have behavioural issues and suffer from Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorders (FASD) – making family life a little more challenging.
