5-2-1-0=8 is an obesity prevention initiative designed to communicate basic healthy habit principles using a very simple acronym. We partner with schools, childcare, and out-of-school programs, healthcare practices, worksites, and community organizations to change environments where people live, learn work, and play. Implementation can be accomplished using a tiered approach which can be as simple as putting up posters or promoting on websites (basic), hosting educational classes (intermediate) to self-sustainment activities such as incorporating into existing curriculum, worksite wellness initiative, or establishing an obesity prevention clinic. The healthy habit guidelines are as follows:
5 – fruits and veggies
2 – hours or less of recreational screen time*
1 – hour or more of physical activity
0 – sugary drinks, more water
8 – or more hours of sleep
