Support for K-5 Healthy Living Programs
National PTA Healthy Lifestyles: Energy Balance 101 Grant Program
National PTA’s Healthy Lifestyles: Energy Balance 101 Grants provide local PTAs with tools to use in partnering with schools and engaging families in improving awareness of energy balance. (Energy balance is simply finding a balance between the calories we consume each day through what we eat and drink and the calories we burn though physical activity.) Participating PTAs will use the Energy Balance Enrichment Zone curricula to educate families on the importance of energy balance, good nutrition, and physical activity in achieving an active, healthy lifestyle; empower families to partner with schools to advocate for and support the implementation of healthy changes around nutrition and physical activity; and provide families with tools to create an environment at home that supports the positive changes at school. Twenty-five grants of $2,000 each will be awarded through the program to PTAs for grades K-5. The application deadline is June 19, 2015.
