Working with WNC Healthy Kids Day and 5-2-1-Almost None
Accessing health care can be challenging for many of us, but it is especially tough for people with low incomes. This issue is compounded by patterns of unhealthy behavior. The LA 31 Class wellness team is focused on spreading information about services and opportunities for families to maintain wellness and enjoy the benefits of a healthy lifestyle. The team joined in the YMCA’s Healthy Kids Day and the 5-2-1-Almost None Initiative of WNC Healthy Kids, specifically, to share the message about healthy habits for children.
What is the 5-2-1-Almost None Campaign?
Team members helped 5-2-1-Almost None design their materials for the festival and will work at the downtown event beginning at 9:00 AM. The festival will weave the 5-2-1-Almost None message into all the booths and activities. The 5-2-1-Almost None message stands for a daily routine of eating 5 servings of fruits and vegetables, cutting screen time to 2 hrs. or less, active play for at least I hr. and drinking almost no sugary drinks. The LA 31 wellness team will follow-up with 5-2-1 Almost None after the festival by distributing children’s storybooks to medical offices, with their same preventive message.
