Workplaces reach parents and caregivers where they spend the majority of their day, in an environment that can highly influence and support their behaviors around healthy eating and physical activity. These parents and caregivers play an important part in supporting and role modeling 5-2-1-0 behaviors for their children. There are also many benefits to employers who want to help employees and families be healthier. The 5-2-1-0 message provides a great starting point for workplaces that are new to wellness promotion and strengthens the efforts of workplaces with existing wellness activities.
5-2-1-0 in the Workplace
Grant County Go! helps workplaces promote the 5-2-1-0 message along with any existing efforts to increase physical activity and healthy eating behaviors for their employees. The goal is for the healthy behaviors adopted by employees in the workplace to be carried over to the home, reinforcing the messages their children are exposed to in other settings including: schools, child care and out of school programs, the doctor’s office and in communities.
