ready, set, go! 5210
The YMCA of Pierce and Kitsap Counties has partnered with MultiCare and other community leaders to bring 5210 to schools. A community-wide initiative, 5210 offers youth an opportunity to commit to daily health goals:
5 servings of fruits/vegetables
2 hours or less of recreational screen time
1 hour or more of physical activity
0 sugar-sweetened drinks
Based off of curriculum from “Let’s Go! Maine,” youth learn everything from appropriate food portions, and family exercise ideas, to the importance of water, and activities to reduce time spent in front of a screen. Material is presented in a fun and nurturing environment that promotes strengthening the spirit, mind, and body.
