As a parent, what you do makes a difference in your family! Research shows that kids model their parents’ behaviors and attitudes. Kids learn to enjoy heathy foods and be physically active by watching those around them, and even small changes can make a big difference. We’ve developed a variety of resources to help your family live by 5-2-1-0. And for parents of children with intellectual and developmental disabilities, we have tailored tools specific to the challenges these children and their families face.
Let's Go! partners with pediatricians and family physicians, child care programs, out-of-school programs and schools to make the healthy choice the easy choice. A great example of how Let’s Go! is creating healthier environments is the Smarter Lunchroom Movement taking place in 280 school cafeterias. Get the facts and give school lunch another chance.
Maine is leading the nation in school lunch advancements. To see the progress for yourself, view our Public Service Announcement.
Let's Go! Sites
See if your child’s school, out-of-school program or child care is a Let’s Go! site.
While a lot of our work is focused on creating healthier child care programs, schools, and out-of-school programs we partner with health care providers and parents. Providers support families by reinforcing the importance of making healthy choices and parents put advice into action to shape their child’s healthy behaviors.
