    Captain Cranberry
    21 Day Challenge - "Be a Super Snacker"
    Healthy Snack - "Captain Cranberry"

    Prosper ISD is competing against Wylie ISD to promote health and nutrition in a friendly competition sponsored by Medical City Children’s Hospital called the 21-Day Challenge. The Challenge began on October 7. The primary purpose is for our own elementary students to create healthy snack options and commit to healthier “snacking” for this 21-day period in hopes that will create habits of healthier eating for life. This is a good-natured competition promoting a great cause. Scores are based on the percentage of parents that enroll their child in the program, eat healthy snacks and do the post-challenge survey. Some of the menu items in the healthy snack recipe book were created by our high school culinary students, taste-tested by parents/students, and submitted.

    What's Next?

    Now that your child is registered - each day beginning October 7, create a healthy snack from either your book (will receive at school) or the healthy snack finder at www.kids-teaching-kids.com

    Let's be Super Snackers together!
