Resources for Families
Are you interested in helping your family to make a healthy change? That’s great!
We know you care about your children and want them to enjoy good health. Live 5-2-1-0 makes it easy for kids to make healthier choices with its two simple goals: eat healthy and be active! It also makes it easier for parents to look for opportunities to achieve a healthier lifestyle for their families. Children can accomplish so much when they have support from their families.
SCOPE and our partner communities have created several great resources to help your family Live 5-2-1-0! Check them out below, and download them to inspire change in your family. We’ll be adding more all the time, so check back often!

To reflect the diversity of children growing up in British Columbia, and to highlight the universality of children’s desire and need to play, our partners at the City of Surrey, the City of New Westminster, and Fraser Health have created the Around the World Outdoor Games Booklet.

Leaders in the Stó:lō Service Agency, along with their partners in the Chilliwack Division of Family Practice’s Healthy Kids Initiative, adapted the Live 5-2-1-0 message to create the Live 5-2-1-0 Medicine Wheel. This resource shares the Live 5-2-1-0 message using the directions, terms, and colours from a lesson plan of the Ojibway tribe, and incorporates suggestions for healthy daily behaviours. The Live 5-2-1-0 Medicine Wheel can be used with children as a daily goal tracker to help them see how much healthy balance they have in their choices.
The Live 5-2-1-0 Medicine Wheel is generously shared by the Stó:lō Service Agency for use by other communities. If your community is interested in adapting their own version of the Live 5-2-1-0 Medicine Wheel to meet their own unique cultural needs, please contact SCOPE.
