5-2-1-0 is an evidence-based practice originally developed to fight obesity in school-age children. The tenets of the program include eating five or more servings of fruits or vegetables per day, limiting recreational screen time to two or less hours per day, engaging in one hour of physical activity daily, and consuming zero sugary drinks.
5-2-1-0 Kitsap is a countywide initiative and an offshoot of the Kitsap Community Health Priorities group which aims to improve the overall health of Kitsap residents.
