Ravalli Head Start is participating in Montana Harvest of the Month!!

Each month, our preschool along with other participating centers, K-12 schools, and healthcare facilitates throughout Montana will showcase one locally or Montana grown or raised food by

a) serving it in a meal or snack,

b) offering taste tests to children, and

c) doing educational activities.

The two primary goals for this program are to expose students to new, healthy foods and to support Montana’s farmers and ranchers.

April Food of the Month


Beef is this month’s Harvest of the Month! Montana is home to more cows than people and ranks 6th in the nation for the number of beef cattle. 

Keep it moooving! Beef packs a powerful nutritional punch. It is an excellent source of protein for building strong muscles and contains important nutrients like iron and B vitamins. Select lean cuts of beef, trim the fat, and drain cooked ground beef to lower the fat content. There are many ways to cook up a healthy meal with beef. Consider making beef fajitas by piling your favorite veggies in a whole-grain wrap with thinly sliced stir-fried beef.  

Montana is home to more cattle than people and ranks sixth in the nation for the number of beef cattle. These bovines have been grazing in our nation’s fields since the 1500s. Cattle are ruminants, which means they have four-chambered stomachs that allow them to digest grasses.
