Produce for Kids -- Play With Your Produce Healthy Challenge

The focus of Produce for Kids is to help educate kids and parents on the benefits of eating a healthy diet and exercising every day. The Play with Your Produce Healthy Challenge invites classrooms to create an original, innovative, and creative project that focuses on getting kids to eat more fresh fruits and vegetables. All entering classrooms will receive coupons and discounts for fresh produce, sample lesson plans with fun fruit & veggie activities, discounts on nutrition books and curricula, and Produce for Kids goodies for the classroom.

Entries are accepted from preK-12th grade classrooms in public or private schools. Three grand prize winners will receive a classroom party toolkit (with party ideas, recipes, favors and gift certificates to purchase produce and other nutritious food), a $500 mini-grant to promote school-based health and wellness, and their photo and write-up highlighted on the Produce for Kids website.

Deadline: November 1, 2008

Please Note: The Center for Health and Health Care in Schools (CHHCS) does not administer this funding opportunity.
