Dear Parents and Guardians,
We are pleased to announce that we have teamed up with the Healthy Sarasota County Collaborative to become a Healthy Sarasota County Child Care site. This effort aims to increase opportunities for healthy eating and active living. Healthy Sarasota County works within many sectors in our community (in schools, early childhood, after school, health care and workplace settings) to reach children and families where they live, study, work and play.
Eating right and being physically active can be a challenge in today's busy world. To address this, Healthy Sarasota County focuses on a consistent and simple 5-2-1-0 message:
5 - Fruits and vegetables - more matters! Eat fruits and vegetables at least 5 times a day. Limit 100% juice.Type your paragraph here.
2 - Cut screen time to 2 hours or less a day (TV, computers and video games). No screen time for kids under 2.
1 - Be physically active at least 1 hour every day.
0 - No soda or sugar-sweetened sports or fruit drinks. Instead, drink more water and non-fat or 1% milk.
We will be working hard to incorporate the 5210 message into our daily activities and child care environment. As part of our commitment to this program and its message, you may receive parent-geared information, which will highlight the messages your child is learning at our center.
