How to Play Nutrition Tic-Tac-Toe

This challenge is simply a way to create awareness of how you can include healthier nutritional decisions in your day.
Print off one game sheet a week, place an “X” over the square of any of the items you complete in the day, for example, if the box says, “Have two servings of fruit,” place an “X” in the box if you had them, then, choose which direction you will attempt to go to make the Tic-Tac-Toe across, up, down or diagonal to get three in a row for the day. After one month, you hopefully will incorporate some of the healthy nutrition habits in your daily life.
