Kentucky has the prescription for significantly reducing childhood obesity. It’s called 5-2-1-0.
- 5 – eat 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day
- 2 – limit screen time to no more than 2 hours a day
- 1 – be physically active at least 1 hour a day
- 0 – don’t drink sweetened beverages
The campaign is designed to give parents, healthcare professionals and day care operators a memorable way to talk about the key evidence-based behaviors that reduce childhood obesity.
