What It Is

Kentucky has the prescription for significantly reducing childhood obesity. It's called 5-2-1-0.

  • Five: Eat five or more servings of fruits and vegetables each day.
  • Two: Limit screen time to no more than two hours a day.
  • One: Be physically active at least one hour a day.
  • Zero: Don't drink sweetened beverages.

The campaign is designed to give parents, healthcare professionals and day care operators a memorable way to talk about the key evidence-based behaviors that reduce childhood obesity.
