Celebrate Healthy Lifestyles

In This Section

November is Healthy Lifestyles Month!

PTAs nationwide are encouraged to plan healthy student events and family activities throughout the month as a way to kick off their year-long commitment to creating healthy and safe places for kids to learn and thrive.

What will your PTA do to celebrate?  Get creative!  Make healthy living fun!  Some ideas include:

1. Issue a student challenge each school day of the week

  • Day 1: Drink 8 glasses of water!
  • Day 2: Walk 10,000 steps today!
  • Day 3: Eat a new vegetable today!
  • Day 4: Eat a new fruit today!
  • Day 5: Get 30 minutes of physical activity today!

2. Plan a healthy event for the whole family

  • Healthy lifestyles expo or health fair
  • Turkey trot
  • Healthy cooking demonstration
  • Clean up the playground
  • Create a school garden
  • Host a farmers market

3.  Serve only healthy foods at PTA events.

4.  Make every PTA fundraiser a healthy one.
