5210! Healthy Kids

Our Purpose is to spread awareness of childhood obseity/diabetes and to help educate our local school's how to live active, healthy lifestyles. 

‘5-2-1-0’ stands for ‘5 fruits and vegetables’, ‘2 hours or less of screen time’ (TV, video games, etc.), ‘1 or more hour of activity’, and ‘0 sugary beverages’. ‘5-2-1-0 Healthy Kids’ is a College of Medicine student organization with the goal of teaching elementary- school-aged children about healthy habits and the importance of physical activity in order to combat the problem of childhood obesity. 5-2-1-0 also works to prevent the onset of Type II Diabetes in the youth of Columbus, providing opportunities for service to all OSU students. Our goal is to improve understanding of the current health crisis and publicize the resources available to children and families of underserved communities to pursue healthy living.

Nationally, 5-2-1-0 is an evidence-based prevention message centered on recommendations from the Childhood Obesity: Assessment, Prevention and Treatment Expert Committee, sponsored by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Health Resources and Services Administration (HSRA/HHS), and the American Medical Association (AMA).
