Are you getting your 5-2-1-0?

Healthy NH started the 5-2-1-0 public health campaign to bring awareness to daily nutrition and physical activity guidelines. This initiative highlights 5 simple and clear steps families can take to fight childhood obesity.

5  Fruits and vegetables…more matters!  Eat fruits and vegetables at least               5 times a day.  Limit 100% fruit juice. 
2  Cut screen time to 2 hours or less a day.
1  Participate in at least one hour of moderate to vigorous physical activity every day.
0  Restrict soda and sugar-sweetened sports and fruit drinks.  Instead, drink water and 3-4 servings/day of fat-free/skim or 1% milk.
