New Horizon Academy’s commitment to excellence includes a strong focus on health and nutrition. We provide well-balanced and age-appropriate meals, incorporate ample physical activity during the day, and teach children about the importance of embracing a healthy, active lifestyle.
We provide good nutrition to empower children’s physical, cognitive, emotional, and physical growth. We promote knowledge about nutrition to our children, families, and staff through education, communication, and by offering children healthier and diverse food choices.
“I love the high quality of food served to children at New Horizon Academy. There’s always a fresh fruit or vegetable. My son is exposed to a great selection of food, and he’s become such a healthy eater!”
At New Horizon Academy, we understand the importance of a healthy start, which is why our curriculum includes hands-on learning opportunities such as planting school gardens, cooking activities, and taste testing.
Family-style meal service offers an opportunity to expand on social, emotional, cognitive, and fine motor skills. It is also gives children opportunity to be more at ease in trying foods. Staff sit with children to provide encouragement, and the children decide what and how much. Children are much more eager and willing to try new foods when they are in in control.
New Horizon Academy’s food and nutrition team supports our schools and provides guidance with managing food allergies, kitchen manager professional development, and on-site visits to support our health and nutrition mission.
