Kids. It takes just a few small steps each day to keep them healthy. From fruit and vegetable servings to physical activity, take a look at the numbers to live by.

Numbers To Live By

  • 5 servings of fruits and vegetables – Eat a rainbow every day!
  • 4 glasses of water – Choose water, low-fat milk, or 100% juice when thirsty instead of sugary drinks.
