In addition, breakfast and snack supplies are delivered to the group day-care center. Vegetarian main meals for all meals are available every school day.
The national nutrition advisory board’s school meal recommendations form the basis for menu planning in Laitila’s schools. School meals are an essential part of the school’s food education and the promotion of the well-being of the whole school community. School meals also play an important role in ensuring good nutrition and promoting health and well-being for the population as a whole. School meals are part of school-based food education. From a pedagogical point of view, school meals can be used to introduce pupils to issues such as the health, quality, price and environmental impact of food, food technology, globalization, multiculturalism, local food culture, different diets and the importance of good habits.
According to the national nutrition council’s school feeding recommendation, school meals should provide about one third of a pupil’s daily energy needs. So children need tasty and nutritious food at home too.
