We promote healthy eating practices that are free to enrolled children by participating in the Virginia Department of Health's Child & Adult Care Food Program.

Scott County Public School Head Start programs are required to follow strict guidelines regarding the types of foods that are served to children. Head Start menus are developed to ensure that food served to children is high in nutrients while low in salt, sugar, and fat. Food served to the children are chosen from the CACFP Food Guide and given in the correct portions according to age.

During family style meals, children are allowed to serve themselves seconds and may participate in some preparation and cleanup activities. Breakfast, lunch and afternoon snack is provided by Head Start.

Special Dietary Needs

If your child has allergies or cannot eat certain foods due to health problems, or religious beliefs, we can work with you to provide special diets to ensure healthy food substitutes. 

Outside food is not allowed due to special dietary needs. Parents who wish to celebrate holidays or birthdays will be encouraged to plan with the teacher on creative alternatives for celebrations. We encourage parents to be involved in nutrition activities by sharing recipes and menu ideas, or volunteering in the classroom.

Discrimination Complaint Process
