The summer holidays can be a time parents count their pennies, with the need to feed and entertain their kids for weeks.

There is an answer, as bargain hunting website Money Saving Central has listed shops and restaurants where children, mostly aged 10 and under, can eat for free or for with discounts over the school break.

All four major supermarkets have kids deals, with some needing no adult spend at all.

Some restaurants, hotels and even IKEA have also set up deals to help the family finances stretch further over the summer holiday.


Shop at Asda? Go to their cafe and children eat for £1 all day, with no adult spend at all.


Little ones can get a free breakfast with any adult purchase at a Tesco Café. The Kids Eat Free offer is available from July 24 to September 1.

The supermarket's 'Little' range includes beans on toast, eggs on toast, avocado on toast and blueberry pancakes.
