Kids Can Eat Free At Morrisons Café During Half Term
The supermarket café, which offers a wide variety of options including hearty meals, fresh soups and even afternoon high tea, allows kids to grab a free meal with every adult meal worth £4.50 or more purchased.
The deal, which is available from 3pm until café closing time, is available for all children under 16 and includes a piece of fruit and a juice drink or water.
Kids can choose from a creamy macaroni and cheese with garlic bread, fish fingers, chips and peas or that old childhood favourite - chicken nuggets with chips and baked beans.
While the deal has been available from Morrisons previously, it comes after a number of restaurants pledged to serve free food to children who are usually part of the free school dinners scheme over the half-term holidays.
After Conservative MPs voted down a motion bought about by the Labour Party to extend the scheme until Easter 2021, footballer Marcus Rashford, who has previously vowed to end child food poverty in the UK, started posting restaurants offering free meals to children on his Twitter page.

The huge number of restaurants offering to play their part in making sure children had food to eat was then compiled into a Google Maps page, so people could see which eateries were closer to them.
McDonald's was among one of the biggest fast-food chains to also contribute, donating the equivalent of one million free school meals to food charity FareShare.
In other Morrisons news, the brand have recently been praised for offering packed bags of shopping that shoppers can buy to donate to their local foodbank.

The bags, which Morrisons have dubbed "Pick-Up Packs", were introduced by the store as a means to help food banks, which can often be overloaded with too much of a certain product.
The stores are working with different food banks to assess what is needed before compiling the Pick-Up Packs.
