Day care meals

At day care centres, we provide children with breakfast, lunch and a snack. At day care centres that provide shift day care, we also provide children with dinner and an evening meal, also on weekends.

Day care meals are based on the needs and wishes of the children. A balanced meal based on the food plate model covers the nutritional needs of a growing child.

Service Centre Helsinki provides day care meals based on the meal service description agreed upon with the Education Division.

We also provide cleaning and clothes care services at 180 day care units.

Menus and themes

Day care centre meals are based on a six-week rotating menu.

Meals served at day care centres

The meals served at day care centres form a part of the child's daily nutritional intake.

Special diets

We provide special diet options based on medical grounds on the basis of a medical certificate.
