GET REGISTERED FOR THE 21-day CHALLENGE!!!
With childhood obesity more than tripling in the last 30 years, Medical City Children’s Hospital wanted a way to educate students about healthy eating habits. The Kids Teaching Kids ℠ program challenges high school students to create a recipe book full of healthy, flavorful snacks for elementary kids. The idea being, if we can get kids to change their ways of eating, chefs will follow suit in their ways of preparing. Let’s face it, healthy food isn’t just good for you, it tastes good, too. From that simple beginning, the Kids Teaching Kids 21-Day Challenge was created. For 21 days, participants use the Kids Teaching Kids snack book or the snack finder on the kids-teaching-kids website to find healthy snacks to eat. It takes about 21 days to build a habit. The challenge is designed to change snacking habits into healthier choices.
