A healthy and fresh meal at noon

Published April 11, 2022

At Wiedewei we are always evolving to grow our childcare even greener. As you may know, 'healthy' is an important part of Wiedewei. We therefore offer the children healthy snacks and the children often drink delicious water with fresh fruit.

A healthy, hot meal at noon
Healthy food is important for growing children. This includes varied food and fresh ingredients full of vitamins, minerals and nutrients. That is why a test is running at two locations; Wiedewei Paddewei in Barendrecht and Wiedewei Zierikzee. All children of the day care at these two locations receive a healthy, hot meal instead of the bread meal. This contributes to the taste development of the children and they learn more about fresh ingredients. Healthy and educational!

Who provides the hot meals?
The Madaga organization provides the hot meals. They specialize in fresh and healthy meals for childcare. Together with nutrition specialists, they develop balanced weekly menus that meet the guidelines of the Netherlands Nutrition Center. In addition, every meal contains at least one serving of vegetables.
Does your child have a certain allergy or (dietary) wish? Then we will of course take this into account.

Go through the trial period
In the trial period at Wiedewei Paddewei and Wiedewei Zierikzee, we follow the experiences of the children and the findings of parents and pedagogical staff. Tips and recommendations will be included in the sequel. After the trial period, the children of all Wiedewei branches will have a hot meal at lunchtime.
