Food, Nutrition and Health

Let’s Go! was born in 2006 with support and funding from seven Maine-based business leaders (a group of organizations that we now refer to as our Founding Partners). Building off the success of the 5-2-1-0 healthy habits message, which originated with the Maine Youth Overweight Collaborative (MYOC), a team of dedicated professionals set out to tackle childhood obesity. The program expanded and in 2007 committed to working in multiple settings (school, out-of-school, child care, health care, community, and workplace). Let’s Go! continues to use this multi-setting model today. The program has become a movement fostering positive changes, one healthy choice, one healthy habit, one healthier environment at a time.
