Governor Ruth Ann Minner, U.S. Senator Tom Carper, U.S. Representative Mike Castle and Lt. Governor John Carney Join 125 Delaware Community Leaders Endorsing the Campaign to Make Delaware's Kids the Healthiest in the Nation
Date:10/4/2007

t alone, the teachers, students and staff understand the importance of good health and good academics. They are a great example for this statewide campaign."

NHPS has been working for more than three years to improve the ability for Delaware kids to make healthy choices. "We have done that by reaching out to kids in all the places where they spend their time, like schools, child care centers, community centers, and doctor's offices. This campaign is an amplification of our ongoing work as a catalyst in the community. We all have a part in accelerating policy and practice changes around healthy eating and physical activity in places where kids live, learn, and play," said Chang.

The campaign has two components, which reinforce each other, and work together to Make Delaware's Kids the Healthiest in the Nation.

The first component of the campaign will focus on policy and practice changes that can enable Delaware's children and youth to live healthier lives. The theme of this campaign component is that our Kids Can't Do it Alone, and that it will take the collective action of committed adults to create environments in which kids can eat healthy foods and engage in more physical activity.

The second component of the campaign is aimed at parents and children, and will focus on what children can do to adopt the 5-2-1 Almost None lifestyle for healthy living -- eating five or more servings of fruits and vegetables per day, spending no more than two hours per day in front of a screen (TV, video games, recreational computer time), getting at least one or more hours of physical activity per day, and drinking almost no sugary beverages (like soda and sports drinks). This component also will address how parents can model healthy behavior for their kids and will provide them with appropriate information tips and resources on how they can implement 5-2-1 Almost None in their homes and in their communities.
