This Week's Challenge:
5 Steps to Healthier Schools 
#1 Healthy Food Taste Test
A taste test can be a fun way to get kids to try new fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat/fat-free dairy products. We have a collection of tips to help you organize one at your school. Learn more about food!
#2 Organize a Walking School Bus
If you live near the school ask other families in the neighborhood to create a "Walking Bus," as a fun and active way to get to school. Find out more!
#3 Brain Break Activities
Using physical activity challenges in the classroom help children learn and retain information better.  We have great tools to help incorporate these in the classroom. See the Activities!
#4 Healthy Classroom Party
Be creative! Use these healthy party ideas instead of the traditional cupcakes and soda next time you have a classroom event. Know your nutrition!
#5 Educational Classroom Handouts
Make it easy for schools to provide educational materials to all of the kids in your school by sharing these handy resources. Get the resources!
