True Food Kitchen has announced the launch of High Five True Kids Challenge. The healthy lifestyle initiative provides online resources–like educational materials, recipes and more–to assist families in meeting the suggested five servings of fruits and vegetables daily. In addition to providing guidance on healthier cooking tips and techniques, the goal of the True Kids Challenge is for families to have learned new eating habits and introduced new foods to their diets during the 30 days so that their progress can continue when the challenge is complete.
“True Food Kitchen was created as part of a mission to help people learn that whole, responsibly-sourced and nutritionally-dense foods can be prepared simply and still taste amazing,” says Sam Fox, founder of Fox Restaurant Concepts. “We want to take this philosophy a step further by helping families do the same at home.”
Upon signing up for the True Kids Challenge at www.TrueKidsChallenge.com between now and Aug. 31, families will receive weekly emails for 30 days with helpful resources for healthier eating. After making the pledge, True Food Kitchen will encourage families to share their progress on social media, offering a $500 donation to a children’s charity in each of the seven True Food Kitchen locations if 3,500 pictures are shared on Instagram using the handle @true_food_kitchen and hashtag #TrueKidsChallenge.
