What are the appropriate grade levels?


Is there a limit to the number of participants?


The theme for this project is:

Health and Wellness, Nutrition, Education, Food, Art

91% of kids do not eat the recommended daily servings of fruits and vegetables. Through a multi-touch point project with Nurture, students will first receive their personal copy of “Give it a Go, Eat a Rainbow” to read with the author and take home. Students will also be provided with a fun “challenge” to try new fruits and veggies at home, keeping in mind the fun theme of the rainbow. To spread the positivity of the rainbow to the greater community, students will create an art project for either St. Luke’s hospital, the senior center, or another community location of the class’s choice. The project will conclude with a Rainbow Day when the students will wear colorful clothes, be ambassadors of healthy eating, and taste an arrangement of colorful fruits and veggies.
