The Strong4Life Challenge team is coming to your school soon!

We all want happy, healthy kids. But as a busy parent, helping your kids eat well and stay

active can be a challenge. At Strong4Life, created by Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta, our

doctors, nutritionists and wellness experts create fun, easy ways to help your kids eat, move

and live healthier.

Getting—and staying—on a healthy track isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. That’s why

Strong4Life has specialized programs for kids to reset and recharge through nutrition and

activity. Children and families across the state of Georgia have participated in our programs—

including our exciting Strong4Life Challenge program, which is coming to your school.

Strong4Life Challenge basics

The Strong4Life Challenge includes two school visits held over the course of one school

year, during which time the Strong4Life Challenge team delivers messages that are energetic,

cool and kid-friendly.

The program will kick off with a 45-minute schoolwide pep rally (which generally takes place

in the fall) and conclude with a follow-up visit in the spring. Each student will participate in

the pep rally, and will receive a Strong4Life Challenge water bottle and T-shirt during the

school year.

We need your help!

As parents, you have the ability to influence your child’s habits. Help us by reinforcing the

four Strong4Life Healthy Habits at home: make half your plate veggies and fruits, be active,

drink more water and limit sugary drinks, and limit screen time. And please join your child in

becoming Strong4Life!

For more information on how to be Strong4Life at home, visit Strong4Life.com.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

Sincerely,

The Strong4Life Challenge Team
