FOR children, the end of the school term comes with joy, but for many parents the six long weeks often mean worries on how they will feed the hungry kids.
Luckily, as a growing number of cash-strapped Brits are struggling to make ends meet, numerous popular eateries across the UK are offering a helping hand.
Here, Fabulous takes a look at the places where your child can enjoy a meal either for a quid – or totally free of charge.
According to parents on Facebook, the popular pub chain Beefeater offers a scrumptious all-you-can-eat breakie for those with children.
From freshly cooked full English or continental favourites, Beefeater adult fans can start their day for £9.99 – and for every adult breakfast purchased, two kids under 16 get to eat for free.
If you fancy popping in the pub during the day, the popular chain also offers a bargain deal on a three-course kids menu priced at £6.99.

The Sun recently revealed that the major supermarket chain ASDA had made major changes in their cafes – and it's great news for families.
As of the end of June, ASDA began to offer half-price adult meals from 3pm every day and £1 dishes to kids to help support families during the cost-of-living crisis.
Since June 2022, the supermarket was proud to announce to have served a whopping 7million £1 meals, and now they also have new vegan options available.
The popular high-street pizza chain Bella Italia is also amongst the latest eateries to join the scheme.

The Italian cuisine-inspired restaurant offers £1 meals for kids with the purchase of every adult main from 4pm-6pm Monday to Thursday.
The £1 bargain deal comes with a three-course meal, as well as a drink, and Bella Italia will also have something to keep the tots entertained.

Speaking of pizza and all Italian goodness, Purezza is a great option for those following a vegan lifestyle – or wanting to enjoy a plant-based diet.
Voted as the ''best vegan restaurant in London'', the pizzeria, also based in Brighton, has ''a big deal for little people''.
Children under the age of ten get a free pizza, whether that's a more cheesy or veggie-based treat.
The family-friendly restaurants at Premier Inn have got you – and your kids – covered with their hearty cooked and continental breakfast.
When an adult orders a full breakie or a Meal Deal, up to two under 16s eat for free.
The same deal, parenting expert Kirsty Ketley added on Instagram, is also available at rival Travelodge.
The budget hotel chain, which now has rooms for just £38 per night this summer, will feed two kids for free when an adult buys a breakfast for £8.99.
The menu at Bill's is a real treat – and now up to two kids can eat free all day until Friday, 1st September. However, the offer does not run on Saturdays and Sundays.
If an adult orders any main dish, whether that's grub for breakfast, lunch or dinner, two kids can enjoy some of their top family favourites, including buttermilk pancakes and mac'n'cheese.
Like most UK supermarkets, the food giant Morrisons also offers a helping hand to parents during the term holiday.
Their Kids Eat Free scheme applies when you purchase any adult meal with a minimal value of £4.49 – but according to their website, extra portions or trade-ups are not included.
As a rising number of mums and dads are finding it increasingly difficult to keep up with the costs and bills, Sainsbury's, too, are running a £1 deal for kids.
When an adult purchases a hot meal from 11.30am onwards, children can enjoy a bite or a lunch bag for a quid.
The lunch bag, otherwise priced at £3.25, comes with a Just Cheese or Just Ham sandwich, ready salted crisps or cheese puffs, a jelly pot, a piece of fruit and a kids' drink.
IKEA – the store that's long been known for their furniture… and scrumptious Swedish meatballs.
After a long day of shopping, stop by their café to fuel up, as your kids can devour either a Kids Pasta with Tomato Sauce and a soft drink for 95p.
Other Kids meals are priced at £1.50, the website stated.
Gordon Ramsay Restaurants
The successful restaurant chain by the British cooking guru Gordon Ramsay offers an unforgettable dining experience – kids included.
At selected restaurants, children can enjoy a free main, with the additional option to treat themselves to a pudding for £3.50.
