PROGRAM COMPONENTS 
VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES 
 Nutrition Component 

Nutrition includes eating habits and the processes by which food is used by the body.  Good nutrition is very important for all of us, but it is especially important for young children for the development of healthy bodies and minds.

In Head Start, children will receive about 2/3 of their daily nutritional needs.  Each child is served breakfast, lunch, and a snack.

Your child's weight-for-height is assessed and documented two times per program year to monitor your child's growth and development.  Counseling is provided for children and families who may be at nutritional risk.

The Head Start program receives funding for food services from the U. S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).  What is received depends on attendance of the children.

Menus are posted monthly in each classroom.  Special diets require special physician orders.

The Nutrition Component is also responsible for providing nutrition and consumer education workshops for parents during the year.
