Children’s nutrition is no small issue at GCCSA, Inc. Enrolled children get the best possible nutrition to help them grow up strong and healthy, and are provided a positive atmosphere where they experience and learn good nutrition habits.
Our Head Start (HS) and Early Head Start (EHS) Centers serve nutritious meals and snacks through our participation in the Child and Adult Care Food Program. We establish smart eating habits by:
- Providing nutritiously balanced meals: breakfast, lunch and snacks.
- Serving meals and snacks to children individually and allowing children second servings from the vegetable, fruit, grain, and milk groups.
- Encouraging children to feed themselves, try new foods and allowing them the opportunity to make decisions of what they will eat.
- Providing special dietary meals as prescribed by a physician or as a family preference.
