As a parent, you have the unique opportunity to be a healthy role model for your family and your community! Even small changes can make a difference and you can inspire other families to start living the 5210 way. The basic premise of the “5210 way” is:
|or more servings of fruits and vegetables every day.|
|or fewer hours of recreational screen time.|
|or more hours of physical activity.|
|sweetened beverages or drinks, like fruit juices or soda.|
To learn more about how you can help your family lead the healthiest lives possible, we are pleased to provide you with the resources below.
(The 5210 behaviors are evidence-informed recommendations from groups like the American Academy of Pediatrics, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, and National Association for Sport and Physical Education. This material is the result of a partnership funded by the Department of Defense between the Office of the Deputy Assistant Secretary of Defense for Military Community and Family Policy and the USDA’s National Institute of Food and Agriculture through a grant/cooperative agreement with Penn State University.)
