Healthy Challenge

About the challenge

Produce Man’s Healthy Challenge is a school-wide campaign appropriate for elementary schools (Pre-K through 8th grade students) and includes school staff as well.

During the week-long challenge, students and staff use a tracking chart to reach a goal of eating at least five servings of fruits and vegetables plus another goal, or getting in 30 minutes of exercise daily.

Winning students, staff and classes at each participating school win prizes from local sponsors and compete for grand prize funding awarded to schools.

Approximately 30 public and private schools throughout Northern Kentucky participate annually.
