A Community Partnership for Healthier Children
Making positive lifestyle changes is not a simple endeavor. While you may know that things like exercising and eating healthy foods are important, you may wonder about how to incorporate them in your family’s daily life. The goal of the 5210 program — modeled after Let's Go, a very successful initiative in Maine — is to make healthy choices easy choices.
We believe the key to improving the health of children and their families in Pierce County is to increase physical activity and promote healthy eating habits among the six sectors where families spend most of their time: Schools, After School, Early Childhood, Health Care, Workplace and Community.
Our work is made possible by partnering with a variety of community organizations throughout Pierce County.
