Hawaii 5210 Let's Go!
The 5-2-1-0 is a slogan that stands for a set of behaviors associated with healthy weight in children; 5 or more fruits and vegetables, no more than 2 hours of screen time, 1 hour or more of moderate to vigorous physical activity and almost no sweetened beverages each day. This slogan has now been used in more than 40% of healthy lifestyles social marketing campaigns for children.
