Catering and cleaning services for day-care centres

We support the growth and development of small children by offering them tasty and balanced meals at Tampere’s day-care centres every day. A healthy diet is an integral part of the early education provided by day-care centres, which create a foundation for healthy eating habits and lifelong well-being. We take an active role in promoting children’s healthy eating habits by serving 4,400 meals, at 75 day-care centres, daily. In addition to taking care of the catering, we keep Tampere’s day-care centres clean so that the children can play, grow, and thrive in a pleasant environment.

The two-menu system used in day care

For high-quality production that minimises waste, Tampereen Voimia uses a two-menu system for day-care centres and schools. The two menus provide the same dishes over a six-week period, but the order is different. You can check here to see which of the menus your child’s day-care center uses.

Balanced meals

Every meal consists of a main course with side dishes, a salad (focused on greens or grated vegetables) and accompanying dressing, bread and a spread, and a drink (milk, buttermilk, or water). Softer bread is served twice a week. Children who follow special diets may be served specially tailored meals for health or ethics reasons.

Readily available birthday treats from the day-care centre’s kitchen

Tampereen Voimia offers the option of buying birthday treats for the whole group easily, directly from the kitchen. There are many options, from a fruit bowl to ice cream. The kitchen staff make sure that any special diets are adhered to and bring the order to the day-care centre at the agreed time.
