Nutrition by the numbers...

In Wisconsin, there is a movement (no - not the unions) to educate kids on healthy eating. The initiative is based on a local area code 54218. Each number is used to remind the kids of some healthy habit. Here is the call to action for each number:

5 - eat five servings of fruits and vegetables each day.
4 - drink four glasses of water each day (no sugary drinks)
2 - limit your tv exposure to less than two hours
1 - be physically active for at least one hour
8 - get at least eight hours of sleep

It's very reminiscent to the 5 steps to Optimal Health (Hydrate, Exercise, Cleanse, Nourish and Target). Are you taking control of your health and living by the numbers?
