About Us

5210 AZ Way To Go! is a nationally-recognized campaign focused on dealing with the epidemic of childhood obesity. Developed by the AzAAP Childhood Obesity Committee, the program and its messaging suggests the following: Eating 5 fruits and vegetables a day; limiting kids to 2 hours in front of the TV or other technology; 1 or more hours of physical activity per day; and a focus on reducing the consumption of sugary drinks to close to 0.

Knowing that this epidemic cannot be solved solely in the context of pediatric well care, the AzAAP Childhood Obesity Committee is eager to work in partnership with other community members in preventing, assessing and treating childhood obesity.
