Simple changes for a healthier North Carolina
The North Carolina Health and Wellness Commission has made it our mission to promote healthier lifestyles for North Carolinians. And never has it been more important. Ranked as the 5th highest state for childhood obesity in the U.S., it’s clear we all need to make some changes, for our own health as well as the health of our children.
Through the 5+2+1+Almost None method from Fit Family, your family can learn a simple way to live healthier. Follow the formula, and you’ll find that your household will eat plenty of fruits and vegetables, watch only a limited amount of TV and other screens, be physically active and drink almost no sugary beverages. All of these have been shown to promote a healthier life. By sticking to this plan, your family—and the state of North Carolina—will live better.
