Countdown to a Healthy ME Program
A healthy weight is one of the most important ways to have a healthy body. Many children in America carry more weight than is healthy. At the Countdown to a Healthy ME program, our goal is to protect the health of children as they grow. We guide families one step at a time as they develop healthy habits that we hope will last a lifetime. We strive to be positive and encouraging, and we want all of our patients to feel great about the progress they make.
Countdown to a Healthy ME is a Let’s Go! health care site of distinction. We reinforce the Let’s Go! message of “5-2-1-0”: 5 or more fruits or vegetables a day, 2 hours or less of recreational screen time, 1 hour or more of fun physical activity, and 0 sugary drinks, more water or low fat milk.
