 Nourishing food is a foundation for developmentally appropriate learning experiences and contribute to health and well-being!

Mealtime is an important learning opportunity for children. Head Start ensures that your child receives a healthy breakfast, lunch and snack. Head Start promotes healthy eating habits with the hope of establishing life-long healthy habits for children and their families.

Nutrition make it a top priority, National studies show only one in five school age children eats the recommended five daily servings of fruits and vegetables - greatly increasing their risks of cavities. In addition, only one in five children meets even the minimum standards for calcium consumption.
