PTA Healthy Lifestyles Booklet
It can be challenging for parents to sort through all the information on health, nutrition, and physical activity for their children. It can also be a challenge for those promoting healthy lifestyles to find high quality Spanish-translation materials. That’s why the National Parent Teacher Association (PTA), with the support of GlaxoSmithKline, has put together a booklet of up-to-date, reliable information on healthy lifestyles. Offered in both Spanish and English, the booklet focuses on key aspects of healthy lifestyles and tells parents what they need to know, what they can do, and where to go for additional information.
While not dedicated specifically to Safe Routes to School, the booklet contains a feature on walking school buses, with a link to the National Center for Safe Routes to School website. With its wealth of information, this bilingual healthy lifestyles booklet can be an asset to your Safe Routes to School Program. Both the English and Spanish versions can be downloaded from the PTA’s Web site:
