National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month

Live 5-2-1-0 to combat childhood obesitySeptember is National Childhood Obesity Awareness Month, and the Y is part of a community-powered effort to build awareness for the
5-2-1-0 Childhood Obesity Initiative, which recommends children should, every day:

  • Eat 5 fruits, roots and vegetables
  • Limit screen time to 2 hours
  • Participate in 1 hour or more of physical activity and play — that's where the Y comes in!

That's right — We're No. 1!

In San Diego county, 1 in 3 children is considered overweight or obese, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Children with obesity are at a higher risk of having other chronic health conditions and are more susceptible to bullying and lower self-esteem than healthy weight peers.
