Asda has announced that its popular "Kids Eat for £1” cafe meal deal is to continue and cover the school May half-term holiday in Scotland.

In April, the supermarket refreshed its kids’ cafe menu with more nutritionally balanced offers, including new vegan and healthy meal options.

The deal was first launched by the supermarket in their 205 cafes in June 2022.

It allows kids under 16 to enjoy a hot meal without any hidden extras such as a minimum adult spend.

Kris Comerford, Asda’s chief commercial officer, said: “We know that when families are preparing for half term it can often mean an additional strain on household budgets.

“Since the launch of our kids £1 café meal deals in June 2022, we continue to see a significant increase in the number of meals we serve during the school breaks, and we are proud to be able to continue to provide a lifeline to families by extending the offer to cover the May half term holidays.”

The kids menu has a variety of options including two new hot meals recently introduced - penne pasta with meatballs and a vegan hidden veg pasta meal.

The existing hot meals on the menu remain such as fish fingers but customers now have the option of swapping out chips with a salad or peas.

In addition, children will receive a free piece of fruit such as an apple, pear or banana when purchasing the hot kids £1 meal deal.

As an alternative to a hot meal, Asda Café also offer a £1 cold pick-and-mix selection which includes a sandwich, drink and piece of fruit.

The menu also includes new treats such as a jelly pot with whole fruit pieces or a jelly squeeze pouch as an alternative to a pack of crisps.

“We have now served over 1,600,000 million meals since the launch and we hope by continuing to keep this offer running it will help support many more families in the coming weeks,” added Kris.
