Pre-k meal time

Each child will be offered breakfast and lunch while in the classroom (only lunch for the PM classrooms). Meals are free for families who are enrolled in Head Start. VPI families may receive free, reduced, or full pay meals, depending on income level. VPI families should complete a Free Lunch Application to determine eligibility.

All meals are selected based on the healthiest choices for the children. They are low in fat, sugar, and salt. The children and teachers sit together in groups and eat "family style", this helps them to learn social skills as well as receive encouragement from their friends to try new things.

If you have any questions about what your child is eating in the classroom please feel free to contact the Nutritionist.
