Parents- Have you heard of the ‘Live 5-2-1-0’ approach to leading a healthy life? It represents the following key points: eating 5 or more fruits/veggies a day, limiting screens to no more than 2 hours daily, exercising at least 1 hour a day, and choosing zero sugary drinks, opting for water instead. The overall goal of this initiative is to prevent childhood obesity. Learn more about this approach by visiting: http://www.live5210.ca
