NJ Governor Kicks Off Nutrition and Fitness Challenge



The Governor of NJ kicked off a statewide Nutrition and fitness challenge with students on Friday. The statewide fitness challenge to kids, their parents and school leadership across New Jersey today, urges them to take steps toward better children’s health by exercising more and making healthy food choices. The Governor’s Nutrition and Fitness Challenge invites kids between the ages of six and 17 to register at www.nj.gov/health/fitnesschallenge and track their daily progress in meeting four goals: exercise an hour a day; eat healthy; eliminate sugary drinks; and reduce computer and TV screen time.
