Childhood Obesity: “5, 2, 1, 0” & Staying Fit in Monongalia County

The Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) program has been promoting the “5, 2, 1, 0” message to prevent childhood obesity. The message “5, 2, 1, 0” message consists four major components:

  • Limit screen time to 2 hours or less per day
  • Get 1 hour or more of physical activity every day
  • Drink fewer or 0 sugar-sweetened drinks
