Live 5-2-1-0 is a simple message to help kids and families adopt healthy habits. It builds partnerships and opportunities to create healthy environments where kids can eat well and be active every day.
City of Brampton in partnership with Region of Peel and other agencies and organizations got together to offer a “Live 5-2-1-0” summit for 500 school kids, grades 5/6 and 9/10 at Brampton Soccer Centre, Oct 6, 2016.
Live 5-2-1-0 Message:
- Enjoy FIVE or more vegetables & fruits every day
- Power down – no more than TWO hours of screen time a day
- Play actively – at least ONE hour each day
- Choose healthy – ZERO sugar-sweetened drinks
BikeBrampton was invited to host a booth and share our MTO Road Safety Challenge Game with the children. Of course, we advocated the “play actively” part of the message!
Cycling to and from school is a good start on the one hour per day of moderate to vigorous activity, according to ParticipACTION’s 2015 Report Card.
