Nutritionfamily style

Our Head Start centers have been Missouri Eat Smart, advanced level certified since 2012. Many menu improvements have been made including:

  • More whole grains
  • More fruits and vegetables
  • Less processed foods
  • Lower fat milk
  • Fewer sweets
  • More variety of foods

All of our classrooms in Head Start and Early Head Start practice family style meals. Family style meals are  a great way to introduce healthy foods, model healthy behaviors, and provide chances for nutrition education.
