National PTA—a Commitment to Building Healthy Families

Malt-O-Meal – just the name brings wonderful memories of warm breakfasts on cold winter mornings! From our memories as children to raising our own children, Malt-O-Meal has been a part of our lives, which is why it is exciting for me as National PTA president to announce our new partnership with Malt-O-Meal as a sponsor for our National PTA’s Healthy Lifestyles Grant Program!

We all know that children are ready to learn when they are well-rested, well-nourished and physically fit.  Malt-O-Meal joins National PTA in our commitment to building healthy families and helping educate parents and students on the importance of eating healthy and staying active.  Along with Malt-O-Meal’s support, we are excited to launch another year of our Healthy Lifestyles program and to be able to offer grants to schools for programs that help promote better nutrition and increased physical activity.  Through our Healthy Lifestyles program, your PTA can apply for grants up to $1,000 to help support programs that can have a long-term impact on students and families, as well as promote family engagement.

Yes, it is definitely a natural fit – National PTA and Malt-O-Meal – because of their focus on providing access to a nutritious breakfast for all families and their commitment to helping make our planet a healthier place for us all.

Plan to celebrate Healthy Lifestyles Month in November and be sure to visit www.pta.org/HealthyLifestyles  to learn more about best practices and how to apply for your grant. Your PTA could be one of this year’s grant recipients!
