Meal schedule in Ruoholahti

Our Ruoholahti setting consists of four different groups which cater to children from different age groups. The daily routines in all the groups vary slightly, depending on the ages of children in the group. Meal times are usually a little earlier for the children in the younger groups. The daily routines in all the groups are planned carefully to provide for sufficient rest, free play, outdoor time and focussed activities.

The meal schedule for children in the setting is provided below. All the meals are provided by the nursery. Meals are served with milk and water. During snack time, the older children have an open snackbar, this is done mainly to encourage independence among the children.
