Creating Future Healthier Generations

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.

Our Food & Nutrition Mission

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.

We serve:

  • Whole grain bread, pasta, cereal, and crackers
  • Fruits and vegetables (fresh, frozen, and no sugar added)
  • Lower sodium and limited sugar
  • Increased dietary fiber
  • Protein-rich breakfast
  • Vegetarian
  • Cultural food exposure
  • Variety

“The food is top of the line. Healthy food habits start early, and [New Horizon Academy] provides a healthy breakfast and lunch with plenty of healthy snacks as well.”

— Nicole M., Parent at New Horizon Academy

Our Curriculum

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.

Our Food & Nutrition Department

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.
