4th H for Health Challenge

Healthy Kids Out of School, an initiative at the Tufts University School of Nutrition has worked closely with 4-H leaders in New England to develop and pilot the 4th H for Health Challenge, a free program that supports healthy 4-H club meetings (e.g. drinking water and incorporating physical activity).

The Challenge has been a huge success in helping 4-H’ers practice healthy habits. 4-H members and their clubs from across the country have participated in the Challenge and it is now available to California 4-H. Below are some materials to help California 4-H Clubs participate in the 4th H for Health Challenge.
