Brain Breaks That Save Lives!

UNICEF Kid Power Ups get your kids active and saving lives with every dance move they make. Each time your group completes a Kid Power Up track, they unlock a packet of RUTF to treat a child with severe acute malnutrition. The more your kids dance, the more lives they save!
