Written by Shelby Watson, Project Coordinator, Go Nebraska Kids

November is National Family Caregivers Month and Go Nebraska Kids wants to help parents and caregivers be healthy role models for their families and the community!

The first role models that children have in their life are often their parents or caregivers and it is important to promote healthy habits to children from the beginning. Research suggests that one of the greatest indicators of a child’s dedication to healthy habits, such as exercise and healthy eating, is how devoted their parents or caregivers are to those behaviors.  Following the 5-4-3-2-1 Go!® countdown is a simple and easy way to promote positive healthy habits:

  • 5 fruits and vegetables a day
  • 4 servings of water a day
  • 3 servings of low-fat dairy a day
  • 2 hours or less of screen time a day
  • 1 or more hours of physical activity each day,

Children are more likely to adopt these healthy habits if they see their parents or caregivers participating!

Throughout the month of November, families who participate in an activity around each number of the 5-4-3-2-1 Go!® countdown will be entered into a drawing for the chance to win a prize pack valued over $200, which includes:

  • An annual membership to the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo
  • A $50 gift card to HyVee
  • A New Junior Cookbook
  • A Silly Street Board Game
  • Water Bottles
  • Placemats

To be entered to participate in the Caregiver Challenge and eligible for the prize pack, families will need to document their participation around each number of the countdown with a picture or video. Then each family is responsible for sending their files to gonebraskakids@gmail.com. One winner from Sarpy/Cass counties, one from Colfax county, and two from Douglas county will be selected at random. Each winner will be contacted through their email and all pictures and video clips will remain confidential.

Submission to the challenge ends on November 24th. Download the Challenge Flyer in English or Spanish.
