Meals at day care

  • Service

  • Public service

The purpose of day care or pre-primary school meals is to provide children with nutritious and tasty food that meets the nutrition recommendations. A meal is served every day the child attends day care or pre-primary education. Meal services at early childhood education and care and pre-primary education are free of charge.

Special diets are provided for by ensuring that a child will not be exposed to ingredients unsuited to them. Special diets are available for a child for medical reasons and require a doctor’s statement. The child’s guardians must also fill in a notification of a special diet. In addition to food allergies, a child is also entitled to a special diet on the basis of being a vegetarian or based on religious beliefs. The guardian must fill in the special diet form also in these cases.
