Healthy ND 4-H Club

I pledge my health to better living …

To receive the Healthy North Dakota 4-H Club designation, clubs are required to incorporate at least one health, nutrition, food safety or physical activity into a minimum of six regular meetings during the year.
Eat Smart. Play Hard. Together

Part of the Healthy ND 4-H club project is a statewide campaign that emphasizes the importance of making healthy food choices, getting regular exercise and families eating together. The North Dakota State University Extension Service and Bison Athletics teamed up to launch the initiative in 2005.

Family Mealtime Challenge

To be a recognized club, your group needs to do at least one “healthy club” activity during six or more regular meetings and track your activities.
During the 4-H year, your activities should  include at least six of the eight different categories: setting, roll call, programs, demonstrations,
recreation, refreshments/snacks, community pride and field trip.

The goal of the Family Mealtime Challenge is to encourage families to eat with all members of their immediate family present five times per week for a month (four weeks).
