PALA+, a program of the President's Council on Fitness, Sports & Nutrition, promotes physical activity and good nutrition, because it takes both to lead a healthy lifestyle. Start the eight-week program to help you maintain or improve your health. It's a great way to help manage and reach your health goals. Anyone age 6 and older can sign up for PALA+.
The latest PALA+ update was released in March 2017. The PALA+ healthy eating goals have been refreshed to reflect new guidance from the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The program completion requirements have also been updated to allow users to make incremental progress at their own pace towards healthy eating goals that they select and the physical activity goals based on their age.
