Let’s Go! is a nationally recognized childhood obesity prevention program implemented throughout Maine and in a few communities in neighboring states. We partner with schools, child care and out-of-school programs, healthcare practices and community organizations to change environments where children and families live, learn work and play. We developed 5-2-1-0 as the foundation for change.

School nutrition programs serve balanced, low cost or free lunch to more than 32 million children each day. School lunches follow strict nutrition guidelines. They contain a variety of fruits and vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and low fat dairy. They meet minimum and maximum age appropriate calories ranges, limit saturated fat, and limit sodium. Nutrition programs are important allies in our mission of increasing healthy eating in children and youth.
