Nutrition and physical activity play an important role in a child's health.

Staying healthy can be easy to remember when you think about five numbers. 5-4-3-2-1 Go! is a program that was developed by the Consortium to Lower Obesity in Chicago Children. Each number represents the following:

5 servings of fruits and vegetables a day

4 servings of water a day

3 servings of low-fat dairy a day

2 hours or less of screen time a day (tips to reduce screen time)

1 hour or more of physical activity a day (latest recommendations for physical activity for youth)
