Drop the Pop Challenge

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2014

The Kidney Foundation of Canada encourages elementary schools in Manitoba with a significant Aboriginal student population (at least 50%) to organize a Drop the Pop Challenge. This is an opportunity for school and community staff to help educate young students about the dangers of sugary drinks.

Teachers take on the role of challengers, asking students to “drop the pop” and all sugary drinks for one week while they help teach their students more about making healthy lifestyle choices. The Drop the Pop Challenge is a part of the Foundation’s curriculum for Aboriginal schools called Our Children, Their Health, Our Future.
