Tesco’s Kids Eat Free scheme returns for February half term

Tesco has brought back its Kids Eat Free scheme to its network of 315 cafés across the UK for the February half term.

The supermarket is offering a free Kids Hot Meal Deal, Kids Breakfast or Kids Pick ‘n’ Mix deal with each item bought by an adult showing their Tesco Clubcard, with a minimum purchase amount of 60p.

Popular dishes on the menu include beans or avocado on toast, fish fingers, baked chicken goujons or a sandwich. Hot options come with a vegetable side dish.

Tesco UK CEO Jason Tarry said: “We know that household budgets can be stretched over the school holidays, so offering free meals to children when they’re off school is one of the ways we can support families during this time.”

The return of the supermarket’s initiative comes after it provided more than 440,000 free meals to children and families during school holidays last year.

It is one of multiple new schemes the grocer has introduced in recent years to help shoppers during the cost-of-living crisis.

Earlier this year, Tesco cut the price of more than 150 popular grocery products by an average of 12.5%, while hundreds of other items continued to be price matched to discounter supermarket Aldi.

Last year also saw the the grocery giant launch its £5m Stronger Starts grant programme, in which it provides nutritious foods to schools and children’s groups through a partnership with Groundwork UK.
