More vegetables, more contact with nature, less food waste - new operating model for day-care centres

News 2019-12-5
Children like vegetables, fruit, and berries that they have grown and cooked themselves. Day-care centres can reduce their food wastage through long-term cooperation and planning. Interaction between children and nature can be enhanced by taking long excursions into the outdoors, by planting and nurturing plants, and by letting children play with natural materials, soil, and natural water. These results are confirmed by Nature step towards wellbeing (Luontoaskel hyvinvointiin), a project aimed at finding ways to support children's wellbeing and a sustainable operating culture at day-care centres in cooperation with teaching and catering staff.
