Menus and themes
Day care centre meals are based on a six-week rotating menu. Seasonal holidays, such as Independence Day, Christmas, Easter and May Day provide variety to everyday meals. In addition to this, canteens offer themed dishes based on various culinary themes introducing the children to different eating habits, healthy meals and various culinary cultures and flavours.
Day care centres may also organise Mother’s Day, Father’s Day and Grandparents’ Day celebrations, which can include, for example, breakfast offered to visitors.
