The Helsinki City Board is ensuring that children can have healthy meals at local childcare centres with approved vegan daycare menus being offered during lunchtime. The initiative hopes to help introduce the rising dietary lifestyle into a younger demographic, allowing parents that are vegan to ensure the food their children eat at home is similar to what they eat during the day in the care of others. The initiative is one of the first of its kind, adding vegan options to menus specifically designed for young consumers.

Many children undergo daycare supervision as a way to help parents that are away at work with care as well as meal prep. The city of Helsinki plans to ensure that local childcare facilities now carry menu options for children that are use to an animal-free diet with plant-based meals.
