Walk and Wheel to School Challenge- June 5-9, 2017

Did you know that kids who walk or bike to school are more likely to get the recommended amount of physical activity, have higher levels of physical activity throughout the day, and arrive at school more ready to learn? During the week of June 5-9, children from across the City of Greater Sudbury will try to walk, bike or scoot to school as many days as they can.  We will add up the kilometers travelled and see how far our community's kids can travel in a week!


The Water Does Wonders Pledge Challenge- Completed May 2017

We want to challenge you to take the Water Does Wonders Pledge!

You can choose from the Bronze, Silver or Gold Pledges. Let Healthy Kids know and we will promote your healthy choice to our community and you can enter in a draw for great prizes!


The Healthy Kids Lunchbox Challenge November 1st -30th 2016- Completed

Instead of juice boxes or drinks, we are encouraging kids from JK to Grade 8 to bring a refillable water bottle to school every day. The benefits are clear: for kids' health, for the planet, for families' food budgets! So here’s our challenge for kids, parents and caregivers across Greater Sudbury:
1. Sign up for the Lunch Box Challenge here: online sign up form.
2. During the month of November, skip the juice box and send only a refillable water bottle (or white milk) to school with your child each day.

Healthy Kids “Team Water” Challenge- Completed September 2016

Remember when orange slices were the only after-game snack and brightly coloured sports drinks were only for professional athletes? Let’s bring that back! Children today are drinking more sugary drinks and snacks than ever before. Replacing sugary drinks and snacks with tap water and fresh veggies and fruits is one of the best things we can do for our kids’ health. Registration for this challenge is now closed.
