4th H for Health Challenge


The 4th H for Health Challenge was created by Healthy Kids Out of School, an initiative of ChildObesity180 at Tufts University Friedman School. The challenge encourages physical activity and healthy eating habits at 4-H club meetings. Ohio 4-H went a step further and added social and emotional health to the challenge.

Take a leap toward healthier meetings by:

  1. Serving water as the main beverage at four meetings

  2. Offering fruit and/or vegetables for a snack at four meetings

  3. Doing 15 minutes of physical activity at four meetings

  4. Doing an activity to enhance social and emotional health at four meetings

The tracking sheet and other resources can be found in the Ohio Leader's Packet and Curriculum.
