Our Vision and Mission
Children today are living very different lives than their parents and grandparents – they are spending more time on screens, less time being active, and are also consuming fewer fruits and vegetables but drinking more sugary drinks. These unhealthy lifestyles, especially when started in childhood, increase the risk of developing serious chronic disease like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and even cancer. The Live 5-2-1-0 Central Team partners with communities across BC to promote healthy behaviours among children using a collective impact approach.
A province of communities, programs, and organizations sharing the evidence-based Live 5-2-1-0 message and taking action to create environments that support healthy childhood behaviours.
Social & systems change so that every child living in British Columbia is supported locally and provincially to choose healthy every day.
