 Nutrition Challenges

KIN's weekly challenges inspire students to apply their classroom knowledge to real-life scenarios. We invite families to join in and support their child's journey through each challenge.

Lesson 1: Water & Sodium

Every time you want to drink something or are feeling thirsty, choose water! An easy way to remember to drink water is to use a reusable water bottle and bring it with you wherever you go! This will help you stay hydrated and feel energized!

Lesson 2: Fruits & Vegetables

Try at least one fruit or vegetable of every color in the rainbow! That means red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple, and anything in between!

Lesson 3: Grains & Proteins

Spot whole grains three times before we see you next time. This can be at home, at your friend's house, in the cafeteria, at the grocery store, or even at the farmer’s market!

Lesson 5: Sugars

Try three different types of fruits! You can get creative and add them to your breakfast (like in oatmeal), add them to your water, freeze them in yummy chunks, or just rinse and eat them whole!
