EduCare – Holistic Approach to Education in Finland

One of the greatest innovations in Finnish education is free and nutritious school lunches.

In fact, in 1948, Finland became the first country to require all primary schools to serve pupils a free daily hot meal. If kids don’t eat properly, they can not concentrate well on their school work. Furthermore, school lunches provide many great learning opportunities as seen in the video underneath.



You need to look at learning from a wider perspective to understand the holistic approach in Finnish education.

Holistic approach to education:

No dinner-ladies, but self-service in Finnish school canteens.

Healthy food, milk, bread and salad – you take as much you eat.

No leftovers, please. Responsibility and sustainable development.

A class had an over a year project collecting recipes from celebrities and even the Presidents of Finland!
