Nutrition Services

Nutrition services and education are a significant part of the Head Start program. We strive to offer a combination of healthful foods on a daily basis. All meals meet USDA Child and Adult Care Food Program guidelines (see Meal Chart link below).

Meal Chart

Your child will benefit from the nutrition program in many ways. Head Start staff work to ensure that meal time:

  • uses meal time as a time for learning about a variety of subjects, including nutrition
  • introduces new foods to your child
  • is a socializing experience in a relaxed atmosphere
  • develops sound eating habits

Parents will receive a menu at the beginning of each month (look for it in your child’s book bag)
