The Live Healthy Iowa Kids 10 Week Wellness Challenge will encourage Iowa’s youth to consume healthier foods/beverages, as well as, increase physical activity minutes. Registration is now open and schools can encourage their classrooms to create teams of 5-30 students. During the entire ten weeks, youth will track their activity minutes and during two-week time periods, the youth will track fruit intake, vegetable intake, milk consumption, water consumption and screen time minutes.

The challenge is free for all youth and is designed in a competition format so schools can choose to compete against other schools in their neighborhoods or they may choose to offer competition amongst their own classrooms.  Live Healthy Iowa Kids is proud to offer weekly motivational emails, an online team tracking page, opportunities to win incentives during and after the challenge and access to many online resources. As usual, five teams will be awarded at the end of the challenge with cash prizes for their school’s PE/Health department; 1-$1,000 and 4-$500.

Recruit your friends, family or co-workers to make healthy lifestyle changes in 2014! Rally your team and register at www.livehealthyiowa.org beginning December 16th.
