During the Challenge:

  • Encourage parents (via e-mail, discussion, social networks of the school, etc.) to also participate in the
    Tchin-tchin as a family, with water, during mealtimes and have them consult the I'm thirsty for health! Campaign
    tools, designed especially for them, at thirstyforhealth.ca/home.
