Young Horizons

Food Program

Young Horizons is an important source of nutrition for low-income children. Making healthy food choices is vital to children’s growth and development . Learning healthy food choices early in life results in less obesity and overall good health in adulthood. Our food program:

  • Provides healthy food including fruits and vegetables
  • Family style eating
  • Is culturally and developmentally appropriate
  • Breakfast, lunch and an afternoon snack at no additional cost to parents (full day program). Breakfast or Lunch for Half day program.

Nutritious, balanced meals enable healthy development during children’s high-growth early years and also give children the physical energy and mental focus to participate in the Young Horizons activities that teach them social skills, such as sharing and saying “thank you”, and academic concepts, such as numbers, shapes, and letters of the alphabet.
