What is It

The Nourish Challenge is a weight-neutral nutrition program wrapped in a captivating garden theme. Enjoy growing virtual veggies, fruits, nuts, seeds, and grains for logging healthy behaviors and learning fun facts about each plant.


Grow virtual veggies, fruits, and grains from around the world by recording health activities. Then try delicious recipes with ingredients from your garden —  new recipes each week!


  • Each healthy habit you record contributes to growing a virtual plant bearing vegetables, fruit, or grains from around the world.
  • The goal is to grow 30 plants during the 6-week program (1 activity=1 plant).
  • Aim for at least 5 plants a week to reveal delicious, healthy recipes featuring the ingredients you’ve grown.
