Head Start provides education in nutrition principles toward not only the goal of improved child development, but toward the improvement of adult habits. Parents can become involved in monitoring the nutrition status of children as well as in the planning and evaluating of nutritional services in the program. One way to interest parents in a nutritional program is to begin where they are by exploring food preferences and cultural practices in the home.
