A Note from the Medical Editor
Do you know why the numbers 5, 2, 1, 0 are important? They are the keys to remembering the most important elements of healthy living for children. 5 fruits and vegetables a day, 2 hours or less of screen time, 1 hour of physical activity each day, and 0 limiting sugar-sweetened drinks. Are your kids living a 5,2, 1,0 lifestyle?
