Today marks the start of the Christian observance of Lent, the forty days between Ash Wednesday and Easter Sunday when followers traditionally make a commitment to a personal challenge for 40 days. Whether you are Christian or not, this is a great time to make a commitment to your health and create a new healthy habit. Join C.H.O.I.C.E.S. and make a commitment to you health by earning a Presidential Active Lifestyle Award (PALA+).
Choose a different nutrition goal each week including: increasing whole grains, fruits, veggies, lean protein, water intake, reducing sodium, and monitoring portion size. Then make a commitment to weekly physical activity: 30 mins, 5 days a week for adults, and 60 mins, 5 days a week for kids ages 6-17. Not only will you receive an award for reaching your goals but by joining C.H.O.I.C.E.S.' Let's Move!
