Let’s Go! is a community engagement initiative that supports sites in Maine and Mt. Washington Valley, NH to create and sustain healthy environments. Our healthy message for children and youth is 5-2-1-0 every day, have 5 or more fruits and vegetables, 2 hours or less of recreational screen time, 1 hour or more of physical activity, and 0 sugary drinks, more water.
We use a multi-setting model to reach community members. We partner with schools, school nutrition programs, early care and education programs, and out-of-school programs to help create spaces where the healthy choice is the easy choice. These partner sites use Let’s Go! strategies to provide increased time for physical activity, promote drinking more water, use tried-and-true tactics for making healthy foods more appealing, and much more.
