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.
