Adopting a heart healthy lifestyle is beneficial at any age. But imagine the life our kids can enjoy if it starts early? It’s as easy as encouraging the smart eating and physical activity guidelines from the BLEND 5-2-1-0 Wellness Program:
5 – Eat fruits and vegetables at least five or more times every day.
2 – Limit all entertainment-based screen time (including TV, Internet and various smart devices) to less than two hours daily.
1 – Get one hour or more of moderate to vigorous physical activity everyday
0 – Drink less sugar. Try water and low-fat or fat-free milk instead of sugar-sweetened drinks and whole milk
