Notes from the Backpack Podcast

Celebrate Healthy Lifestyles 

National PTA is dedicated to improving the health and wellness of families across the country because we know leading a healthy lifestyle is a key component to our students' success. Celebrate healthy lifestyles at school and at home during Healthy Lifestyles Month in November. Host an event for your families relating to activity, nutrition, or anything in between. You can also apply for grant funding through our Healthy Hydration Program with Nestlé Waters North America and Nestle® Pure Life® to add a boost of hydration to your healthy lifestyles event.  

Make Drinking Water Fun

We all know getting children to drink water can sometimes be a struggle. So, we want to help make drinking water fun and easy for the whole family!

That’s why National PTA has teamed up with Nestlé Waters North America and Nestle® Pure Life® to help make drinking water easier for families.

Because we know that one good habit leads to another – 97% of moms believe that establishing healthy habits at an early age can have lifelong benefits!

Kids who drink water are more likely to...

  • Make smart choices
  • Be independent
  • Want healthy foods.*

Nestle Waters

Healthy Hydration Program

We are excited to offer $1,000 grants to 25 local PTAs to host a Nestlé Waters Healthy Hydration Program at their event during Healthy Lifestyles Month in November.

The Healthy Hydration Programs are sure to be fun for the whole family, with…

Health - Safe Drinking Water

  • Coolers filled with Nestlé Pure Life brand water bottles for children to grab-and-go
  • Information for parents on how to help ensure their child is staying hydrated
  • A water infusion activity to help make drinking water fun
  • A hands-on lesson about added sugars in beverages
  • Recycling bins to encourage proper recycling

PTAs will also complete a yearlong assessment of their school’s food and beverage options so PTA leaders can advocate for healthy options in their school community.
