Up for the Challenge is a fitness, nutrition and health curriculum for school-aged, middle school and teen youth. It is adaptable to in-school or afterschool settings. The 290-page curriculum is divided into five chapters with each chapter containing multiple lessons in physical activity, nutrition and healthy decision making. Lessons range in scope and length from 30-60 minute and consist of hands-on nutrition and physical activities. Each lesson provides expected youth outcomes, instructor essential information, preparation instructions, supplies, lesson time, a technology component, handouts and opportunities for reflection. An on-line evaluation instrument is available with the curriculum to assess how fruit and vegetable consumption and physical activity have changed as a result of participation in the program.
