France travel question

We are heading to Paris in mid-Feb, and obviously have been keeping an eye on the changing rules. I have a question though, has anyone travelled with children under 12 very recently, and is able to confirm that they do not need to produce a negative LFT to enter France?
Having read the French government page, there is a section to indicate that children under 12 do not need to test, but later on it says all travellers from the UK need to produce a test. I am assuming the former is correct but before I buy tests for only half of us, I thought it worth checking with others who have been recently.
Any advice?

I’m travelling to France mid February too. Children under 12 travelling with a vaccinated adult do not need to test.

This is the place to get up to date information.
Unvaccinated children under 12 travelling with vaccinated adults don't need a test.

The Facebook feed of the British embassy in Paris is also useful.
The attached photo is from there.

Apologies for asking on your thread but does anybody know if I need to apply for a vaccine pass for restaurants / Disney ? Or will my nhs app code be sufficient proof to enter venues? Me and my husband are double vaccinated and boosted recently. Thanks

Your NHS app qr code should be good enough, but when I went to France I downloaded the tousanticovid app and scanned my qr codes into that, because I knew that would definitely be fine.

In Paris last weekend I was asked for my vaccine pass in every indoor setting. I downloaded the tousanticovid app because I reckoned it would be easier than trying to explain. It only took a few minutes to set up my NHS vaccine pass on it.

Thanks both that’s really helpful!
