Educating and engaging students in healthy lifestyle changes was the mission we set out on. Students worked with their parents to accept the challenge to make better snacking choices for 21 days. Using cookbooks with healthy snack recipes along with a website, they got healthy ideas. With their families they made better choices at the grocery store. After the challenge they completed a survey to share their journey. It was a great learning experience for all as we all got healthier.

How did students and adults work together as a team?

Students and parents had to work together as a team all the way along during this challenge. The parents supported the students in signing up, shopping for healthier snack items, preparing the healthy snacks and completing the survey at the end of the 21 days. The teachers at school supported both the parents and students on this journey. It was a fun collaborative effort and we all focused on healthier snack options.
