Kids are hit with nearly 2,000 advertisements per day and spend an average of 5.3 hours per day watching TV. Childhood obesity continues to be a problem in our community. That’s why partners in Cass, Colfax, Douglas, Sarpy, and Otoe counties are taking 5-4-3-2-1 Go!® to the streets in eastern Nebraska to create awareness of this important message – to eat right and be active in order to be healthy.
Being a strong role model can instill healthy habits in children for a lifetime. Because parents and other care providers have influence over what kids eat and how often they can move around, they can instill healthy habits in their children that can last a lifetime. Encourage your kids to follow this simple countdown every day to live a healthier life.
