In honor of the Children's Welfare Day, the Danish faience factory Aluminia produced a series of Children's Welfare plates from 1909 to 1930 with motifs of children.

The plates were designed respectively by Christian Joachim, Rasmus Harboe and Oscar Willerup. From 1915 to 1918 the factory published a plate with a girl as well as a plate with a boy. The other years only shows either a girl or a boy. The Children's Welfare plates from Aluminia are the most famous, but also Royal Copenhagen has published a traditional series on the occasion of Children's Welfare Day.
The Children's Welfare Day
The Children's Welfare Day was established in 1904 in Copenhagen by a doctor who thought it was time to do something extra for the needy children in Denmark. The Children's Welfare Day organization still exists today and now has branches throughout the Denmark. The mission is still the same, but today the focus is primarily on children and young persons placed outside their homes.
