Food is the body’s fuel, as petrol is the car’s fuel.
The dietary policy is prepared by:
The head of the kitchen, the departmental head, and the staff with the co-operation of the parents’ committee in St. Norbert’s Kindergarten.
- To foster happy and active children who thrive both mentally and physically.
- To provide the children with a nutritious and varied diet.
From 6.30 to 7.30, the children are offered rye bread, oatmeal and cornflakes with skimmed milk.
At 9.00, the children get rye bread at our morning assembly.
At 11.00, the children have lunch. Three days a week they get rye bread, cold meat and more, together with something warm (fish, chicken or similar). Two days a week the children get hot food, for example, pasta, meat sauce, potatoes, fish and other menu items.
At 13.30 the children are offered an afternoon snack, for example, whole grain rolls, fruit, pizza snails.
For lunch, the children get skimmed milk and water. The children also have access to water during the day.
Parents are welcome to provide the children with additional packed lunches. The contents of the lunches are the responsibility of the parents.
As decided by the parental committee, packed lunches must not contain sweets, milk slices, chocolate spreads, cake and other items, as well as sugary soft drinks and beverages. If children are found with these, we will contact the individual parents.
We recommend that a packed lunch can contain fruit, coarse biscuits, nuts, cheese, figs. We also refer you to the links below.
Birthdays / special occasions:
We regard these days as something special for the child. Sweets, cake and other items can be brought in combination with something filling. We recommend that there is an appropriate balance between these two things and are conscious about limiting the quantity of unhealthy items.
The course of events and the menu for a birthday are always agreed upon with the staff in the room before it occurs.
