Welcome to a school bag packed with educational games and activities for use in schools, at recreation centres, in the playground or at home. The activities are primarily developed for children aged 10–14 and aim to promote healthy habits.
The activity is a 'jungle game' in which the children have to clamber up, down and around to find various food cards. The children then have to categorise the foods on the cards as healthy or unhealthy.
The categorising takes place in the presence of the teacher, who judges whether the cards have been placed in the right box for either healthy or unhealthy foods and supervises the penalties that result from wrong answers.
When you use the School Challenge activities, you support diabetes prevention by helping children to adopt healthier habits.

The earlier in life healthy habits are formed, the greater the chance that these habits will be maintained in adult life, which considerably reduces the risk of developing diseases in which lifestyle play a role, such as type 2 diabetes.
