Don't miss a thing

Half term is here and that means entertaining the kids. Part of that is feeding them and, with money being tight, you need to bag a bargain to be able to eat out. Thankfully, companies across the country have created options for free or cheap meals for kids and here is the list of those places to eat out for less.

Free or cheap meals for kids.

Angus Steakhouse

You can get one free children’s meal when an adult buys a meal between midday and 5pm during the holidays.

Asda Cafe

Kids eat for £1 at Asda until the end of the year. You don’t even have to buy an adult meal to get the deal. The Kids Eat for £1 initiative provides a hot or cold meal for a child and also includes baby food.

Beefeater and Brewers Fayre

These pub chains are running a deal where two kids eat free at breakfast with every paying adult. Grown-ups pay £9.50, with up to two under sixteens enjoying free children’s meals.
