5-2-1-0+10 Every Day
5-2-1-0+10 is a program adopted by the East Baton Rouge Parish School System to combat
childhood obesity. It is affiliated with the “Let’s Move!”
initiative promoted by former First Lady Michelle Obama. Baton Rouge General
endorses the 5-2-1-0+10 program, as part of our partnership with the Mayor’s
Healthy BR Initiative.
The “5” stands for 5 daily servings of fruits and veggies.
The “2” reminds families to limit recreational screen time
to 2 hours per day. The “1” stands for at least 1 hour of
physical activity each day, and the “0” means to cut out sugary
drinks. The EBRP Schools added “10” to encourage children
to get 10 hours of sleep each night.
