School meals are an integral element of the education provided for those of school age. The nutritional objective is to promote the students’ well-being, health and energy. Serving nourishing meals requires seamless co-operation between the school staff and the catering personnel. In addition to providing catering services, we keep Tampere’s schools clean and tidy so that the city’s young people can grow up in a pleasant environment.
The school lunch includes
- A main course, with side dishes
- Except on soup days, a salad, including grated vegetables, and salad dressing
- Bread and spread, with a softer bread served on the days specified in the menu
- Skimmed milk, buttermilk or water
Children requiring a special diet may be served meals tailored to their needs for health or ethics reasons. Details of the City of Tampere’s policy on special diets can be found on the City of Tampere Website:
Refreshing and nutritional snacks contribute to a good diet. Students can buy healthy snacks and coffee-shop items at some of Tampere’s comprehensive schools.
