Health and Wellness policy
Hawaii 5210 "Let's Go!" is an initiative to promote healthy eating and active living and prevent childhood obesity in Hawaii through a coordinated, collaborative, locally relevant health education campaign. The Hawaii 5210 Initiative promotes a consistent message of healthy lifestyles through unique community partnerships in order to optimize awareness and action among Hawaii's keiki and their families.
The 5-2-1-0 slogan names the healthy living message by encouraging behaviors associated with healthy weight in children including:
- 5 or more fruits and vegetables
- 2 hours or less of screen time
- 1 hour or more of physical activity
- no sugary beverages each day
Hawaii 5210 is based at the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics and is led by HICORE, the Hawaii Initiative for Childhood Obesity Research and Education.
