How about you look at the sentence this way:
Government groups have launched a scheme at school where children can eat breakfast.

"at school" is a preposition phrase, used as an adverb to describe "launched"
as you have said, "where" = "in which", then
where children can eat breakfast = in school children can eat breakfast.

if you use "that", then it will become:
"that children eat breakfast", it doesn't sound right. Yes, it does can explain grammatically, but I think it is better you get a feeling why it doesn't sound right.

I can explain it to you in grammar term, but if you don't have the feeling with English, you cannot apply that grammar rule when the sentence changes. I would rather just point out the key issue without going into grammar.

typo! it does can explain... ===> It can be explained ...

I was going to say, "Grammar does explain why". That is why I have "can" and "does" in my typing.

if you use "that", you have to say:
... at school that/which children eat breakfast "in"
= ... at school where children eat breakfast

in which = where
"in that" is NOT equal to "that"
By the way, sometimes
"in that" = because

Rise in interest rate can cause Japan's economy to slowdown, in that (=because) it makes borrowing and investment more expensive and discourages people to "borrow and buy".

however, the above sentence is better to be written as:
A rise in interest rates can cause Japan's economy to slow down, by making borrowing and investment more expensive and discouraging people to "borrow and buy."

Now, you can see, grammar in this case can play very little role !!!
