Some top restaurants and supermarkets are offering free food for children this half term
The rising cost of living has meant families are needing to stretch their money further than ever in 2022, and plenty of companies are looking to help out and ensure everyone can still enjoy a meal out while kids aren’t in schools.
The half term break this year runs between Monday, October 14 and Friday, October 28.
Introduced over the summer, Asda are continuing their deal which allows kids to eat for £1 with no additional adult spend. The deal includes both hot and cold meals at Asda Cafes across the UK and is available until the end of the Christmas holidays.
The deal is available to anyone aged 16 or under and can be used seven days a week.
Families looking to start the day well this half term can head to Beefeater where two under 16s can eat for free with every adult meal purchased. Breakfast is available between 6:30am and 10:30pm Monday to Friday and 7am until 11am on weekends.
The popular pub and restaurant chain is offering the chance for kids to eat for £1 between Monday and Saturday throughout the week. All customers need to do is sign up to the brand’s email club to receive a voucher. The company has two sites near Newcastle, these are Valley Farm near Team Valley Trading Estate and Wheatsheaf Farm in Woolsington.
Any child aged under 16 can use the deal from Morrisons, which only applies when purchased with one adult meal with a value of £4.99 or over. The deal involves a free meal from the kids menu.
Kids will be able to eat for free at all Tesco Cafes this half term with the company offering another deal throughout the week. Parents can claim one free meal worth up to £3.25 but must spend 60p or more to activate the deal.
Clubcard holders are also the only group able to take advantage of the deal. These are, however, able to be obtained through a free trial.
