5210 AZ Way To Go! is a nationally-recognized campaign focused
on dealing with the epidemic of childhood obesity. Developed by the AzAAP
Childhood Obesity Committee, the program and its messaging suggests the
following: Eating 5 fruits and vegetables a day; limiting
kids to 2 hours in front of the TV or other technology;
1 or more hours of physical activity per day; and a focus
on reducing the consumption of sugary drinks to close to 0.
Knowing that this epidemic cannot be solved solely in the context of
pediatric well care, the AzAAP Childhood Obesity Committee is eager to work
in partnership with other community members in preventing, assessing and
treating childhood obesity.
