Schools - BrightBites

BrightBites is a free program designed to guide and inspire schools to create healthy, enjoyable eating experiences, and improve overall school nutrition in a fun and exciting way. By breaking down school nutrition into simple, “bite-sized” challenges, BrightBites allows your class or school to earn badges in a variety of ways. You can then celebrate your successes on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to let your community know about how you are transforming the culture of nutrition!

The two BrightBites badges found below can be earned through the Water Does Wonders Healthy Kids Community Challenge!

Community

Community groups can help reinforce healthy beverage consumption messaging and look for opportunities to make changes in their community (e.g., arenas, swimming pools, youth or community centres, curling rinks, bowling alleys, skate parks, etc.).
