In Green Bay, Wisc., Mayor James Schmitt is leading the way to help facilitate an overall balanced lifestyle for his constituents.
Last week, we joined the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) to award winners of the 2015 Childhood Obesity Prevention Awards. Mayor Schmitt received 2nd place in the medium city category for his Live54218 program which encourages a healthy lifestyle for residents. Live54218 inspires people of all ages to balance their food, drinks, screen time, exercise and sleep by eating 5 fruits and vegetables daily, drinking 4 bottles of water, watching less than 2 hours of screen time, being active for at least 1 hour a day and sleeping 8 hours per night.
America’s beverage companies encourage a balanced lifestyle for consumers. In September, we launched our Balance Calories Initiative, which promotes balancing what you eat and drink with what you do. So, we’re happy to partner with USCM to support initiatives that reach our consumers with a shared goal.
Nice job, Green Bay! For more information, please view the news release.
