While it doesn’t need to be two hours in the cricket nets or a Saturday morning 5k jog, kids do need to move often for their health and development, and the more different movements they do the better.

This term we challenge you to crunch the rainbow for Crunch&Sip® by making a rainbow in your classroom. Eating different coloured fruits and vegetables provides lots of different vitamins, minerals, and phytochemicals. Which is why crunching on a rainbow will help kids get the right balance of nutrients they need for a healthy body.
