c) 5-2-1-0 Multisector Childhood Obesity Campaign

  • 5-2-1-0 Every Day! was modeled after 5-2-1-0 Let’s Go initiated in Maine to help kids and families eat healthy and be active. An important feature of the program from Maine was its emphasis on partnering with six sectors of the community: preschool, school, worksites, healthcare, and community groups to give a consistent message to kids and their families about a healthy lifestyle. The BRI began a pilot version of the 5-2-1-0 program in two communities in 2013, Delhi and Edmeston, and expanded to include two additional communities in 2015. To enlist the help of all sectors in the communities, mini-grants in the amount of $200-$2000 were offered to stimulate sustainable activities that promote the goals of 5-2-1-0.
