This is a great article. I am going to post the resources and ideas in my classroom. Report
Great article! I will try to use this information with my kids. Report
I agree with allowing the occasional treat, as long as they’re eating healthy most of the time!

It's never too late to make a healthy choice. Report
Love the calendar! Makes for a good reminder. Report
I love it! ♥ Report
Awesome! thanks for thinking about the kids too Report
Love this calendar! We were talking to our kids about smarter snack choices last night! They think if they don't have a lot of readily available (junk) food available that we don't have anything to eat. I opened the refrigerator and showed them all the veggies and fruit we have. I cook nutritious meals and we eat together. They get lots of exercise playing outside, playing school sports but we've got to have more education on healthy snacks. I'm writing out my grocery list now. Report
This is completely irrelevant to me because I don't have kids. I've been printing these all year, I LOVE them, but am sad that I won't have one for October. Report

Where can I down load the calendars for every month for 31 Days To Healther Kids? I send many Spark People articles out to our entire school district. The teachers loved the October calendar and are wanting one for each month. Where do I go to dowload and copy these off? Report
I agree with all the prior comments, but especially about having one available not focused on children or family. Not all of us have spouses or children. The benefit of the October calendar for me is very limited.

I looked at the 2010 calendars on the Spark shopping site and also wish there were one with daily suggestions, not just a monthly focus. I still would want space to make my own entries. Report
Could these great calendars be offered in a linear format also, line by line, day by day?
Thanks! Report
