connecting people to healthy opportunities


5210 is a nationally recognized childhood obesity prevention program. It’s a simple, yet powerful message:

5 or more fruits and vegetables

2 hours or less of recreational screen time

1 hour of physical activity

0 sugar sweetened beverages


The Capital Area Wellness Coalition  partners with schools, childcare facilities, after school programs, healthcare organizations and community agencies to change environments where families live, work, learn and play.

We support you with promotional materials and online toolkits. Coalition members can also answer implementation questions and assist with tracking the results of your program.

You provide staff support, build the 5210 message into your ‘curriculum’ of activities, live the message in your behavior and make your educational environment conducive to the message. Additionally, we ask that you administer a brief pre- and post survey to parents (or kids if age appropriate) to track the outcomes of the 5210 campaign and provide those results to the Capital Area Wellness Coalition.

To register your organization as a 5210 Champion, please email Valerie Ferland at Then visit our Getting Started, Toolkits and Resources tabs for more details.
