Calling all kids! Join us for games and activities, and discover a simple and fun new way to stay healthy.

Join us for day of good health and great fun at 5-2-1-0 Day, a celebration of our newest effort to reinforce healthy lifestyle choices that benefit local kids. Phipps’ Let’s Move Pittsburgh initiative is proud to collaborate with Let’s Go!, a national children’s health program, in bringing the 5-2-1-0 movement to Pittsburgh by promoting four key daily guidelines for healthy eating and physical activity: 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables, 2 hours or less of recreational screen time, 1 hour or more of physical activity, and 0 sugary drinks and more water.

To bring each of the four messages to life, our Tropical Forest Conservatory will feature a series of activity stations with upcycled games and crafts, fruit tastings, demos of how to make your own healthy Phipps Splash beverage, and more to keep kids moving and discovering healthy options. Plus, young explorers who collect stamps from all four stations will win a 5-2-1-0 prize! Bring your little ones to this special day of garden play – they’ll have a blast and learn a lot! All activities are free with admission and no advance registration is required.
