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.
