What is 10-5-2-1-0?

10-5-2-1-0 is an important part of being a Healthy Kid! There are lots of different factors involved in living a healthy lifestyle, and 10-5-2-1-0 outlines simple guidelines to live by!

It is important for growing kids to get 10 hours or more of sleep a day, eat 5 or more servings of fruits & vegetables, have 2 or less hours of screen time, 1 or more hours of physical activity and 0 sugar-sweetened beverages!

You can enter to win by showing us how you live a healthy lifestyle in any of those five areas!


The first 10 entries submitted will win swag bags filled with a variety of Healthy Kids sports stuff! All subsequent entries will be entered into a random number draw. The first number chosen will win a sports bike with accessories in the size of their choosing! The next 10 numbers drawn will also receive swag bags!
