November is a great time of the year, with the leaves changing and our attention turning to the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. This month is also National PTAs Healthy Lifestyles Month – a time when PTAs are encouraged to celebrate health and wellness in their schools and communities.

In their new brief, the PTA shared that many folks may think: “How can I possibly think about promoting healthy eating and physical activity during a time of year that brings families together to eat lots of delicious food, watch football, and stay warm and cozy inside?” Families may think: “It’s simply not possible to eat healthy or have time to exercise until after the New Year.” And, everyone may think: “Healthy food tastes bad and exercising is too hard.”
Being committed to health and wellness doesn’t mean being the food or exercise police, serving tasteless meals, or depriving your
family of the treats that make the holidays so special and fun.
It means creating an environment both at home and at school, ever
day, that makes the healthy choice the easy choice for our kids.
It’s about balancing our calories and moving our bodies.
