5210 Fair at Roundstone Elementary School

On Thursday, February 25th, while parents were meeting with teachers the students were participating in a 5210 Fair. 5210 -Healthy Numbers for Kentucky Families is a campaign to help families strive for optimal health by eating 5 fruits and or vegetables a day, by watching 2 hours of less of tv or other screen time, by participating in 1 hour of active play each day and by drinking 0 sugary drinks.
At the 5210 Fair students learned that here is the equivalent of 19 ½ sugar cubes in a 20 ounce Mt. Dew. They learned how fruits and vegetables provide colorful phytochemicals that build our immune systems. There were a variety of activities provided to getting their hearts beating and their faces smiling.
Roundstone students and staff would like to give a big thank you for all who made the 5210 a great success: Southern AHEC, Rockcastle Regional Hospital, WellCare, Rockcastle County Health Department, and EKU Nursing Students.
