Wellness Week – Oct. 1st to 7th
5210 A Way of Life
The 5210 A Way of Life initiative was launched during wellness week 2016, this year we are launching our new website www.5210.ca !
5210 A Way of Life is an initiative that partners with communities across the Northumberland County to promote healthy behaviors among children. It provides clear goals for families to live healthy every day, and provides tools and resources to community leaders to make changes to their programs, policies, and environments so that the healthy choice is the easy choice. 5210 A Way of Life helps build partnerships and create healthy environments where kids can eat well and be active every day.
The 5210 A Way of Life messages are:
Enjoy – 5 or more vegetables and fruit every day!
Power Down – No more than 2 hours of screen time every day!
Move More – At Least 1 hour of physical activity every day!
