The summer holidays can be expensive; this is why we LOVE ‘kids eat free’ (or cheaply) deals!
If you’re planning days out with your family over the six-week break, you could use our list to plan where you eat out – I’ve found that using these deals saves us a lot of money each summer, as well as being lots of fun for the kids! We’ve looked around to see which restaurant chains and supermarket cafes will be offering a kids eat free deal (or cheap deal) this summer…
We will update this post as new deals are announced!
Tesco will be providing free meals for a child when an adult spends £3.50. So, for an average family of two adults and two children, you could potentially all eat for £7! The kids Pick ‘N Mix deal is one to keep an eye out for – it’ll include a sandwich, drink, piece of fruit with two snacks. Their hot meals are also popular – the ‘hidden veg’ mac and cheese is a great way to get some vegetables in their diet!
This deal ends on Wednesday the 1st of September.
Jo Barnes, Head of Marketing and Food Development at Tesco Café, has told the press;
“The summer holidays are the perfect opportunity for some quality family time and a little treat. Families can enjoy a premium quality breakfast, lunch or dinner together whilst shopping at Tesco, all for great value as kids eat free when an adult spends just £3.50.
“We’ve worked really hard to ensure we’re offering balanced and healthy options for our little diners. We encourage well balanced and healthier kids meal options by adding a vegetable side with every hot meal, a piece of fruit with every cold meal and ensuring all our kids snacks are under 100 calories.
We strongly believe that eating out shouldn’t have to cost families a lot of money, especially in the expensive summer holidays, and we wanted to provide some unbeatable offers for families. We’re really looking forward to welcoming our customers into the Café this summer.”
Hungry Horse – Free Breakfast!
Hungry Horse pubs have announced that kids will be provided with a free breakfast from 8am-12pm every day over the school holidays! Each adult will need to spend at least £2.99, and the kids breakfast must be ordered in the same transaction as the adult breakfast.
The offer will be available between the 24th of June & the 18th of August in Scotland, and the 19th of July and the 1st of September in England and Wales due to differing holiday dates.
Morrisons are offering a kids eat free deal all day, every day, with each adult who spends £4.50 or more on a meal! Their fish and chips is one we’d recommend, it’s so fresh and a great portion size. We’re waiting to find out the end date on this deal, so watch this space.
Kids eat free with an adult spending over £1 this summer! As long as your child is under 16, they can enjoy any meal from the kids menu – this is brilliant. Kids meals are generally around the £2.50 mark, so big savings are to be had…
There is no confirmed end date yet but we will add it once we know more.
