In this unit I will learn how to:

  1. differentiate the catering systems
  2. create a healthy food plan
  3. negotiate with the caterer for more sustainable products

Introduction into the topic:

The kitchen facilities in the kindergartens vary a lot. Larger kindergartens with good equipped kitchens and kitchen staff can cook with fresh ingredients. For them it is easier to integrate seasonal, regional and organic food that for those who work with al lot of frozen or convenience food. But no matter if self-cooking or catering all systems can develop in the direction of health and sustainability. From the nutrition point of view a child should eat 5 meals per day, usually 3 are served in kindergarten. Chapter 2 describes how a healthy food choice over the day can be organized.
