5-2-1-0 Virtual Programs offer a variety of content focused on the 5-2-1-0 movement to reinforce healthy lifestyle choices that benefit local kids and their families. The 5-2-1-0 movement promotes four key messages about healthy eating and physical activity. These are:

  • 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables every day
  • 2 hours or less of recreational screen time every day
  • 1 hour or more of physical activity every day
  • 0 sugary drinks and more water every day

By emphasizing these healthy habits, we can all help forge a brighter future for Pittsburgh’s kids! 


Are you getting creative about your schooling options this fall, like forming an education “pod” or “bubble?” All of Phipps’ camps and programs can be easily adapted to multi-family micro-schooling sessions for just $30 for 2-6 students each additional student is $5.00. To learn more, contact hshannon@phipps.conservatory.org; we’re ready to help your group of young learners connect with nature!
