About Snacking for Success

About the 21-Day Snacking Challenge @ Work

Medical City Healthcare and HCA Houston Healthcare are excited to present the 21-Day Snacking Challenge @ Work! Each day of the challenge, you and your colleagues will use the 21 Snacks for 21 Days recipe book or the easy online snack finder to discover a new healthy snack. They look like treats and taste amazing. All include a fruit or vegetable and meet strict nutrition standards. We encourage you to get the whole family involved in this challenge to explore a path to better, healthier lives!

How it All Started

The 21-Day Snacking Challenge @ Work is a direct result of the overwhelming success of our kids' version of the 21-Day Challenge. With childhood obesity more than tripling in the last 30 years, Medical City Children’s Hospital recognized the need to educate children about healthy eating habits. The kids teaching kids® program challenges high school culinary students to create a recipe book full of healthy, flavorful snacks featuring fruits and vegetables for elementary school students. The program has introduced thousands of North Texas families to scrumptious snacks that are also good for them. In many cases, the challenge motivated kids and their parents to take up other healthy habits. Today, they're playing together, eating together, and enjoying happier, more energetic lifestyles.
