Early Childhood Health and Wellness


95210:  Manchester's Message for a Healthier You is Manchester's official wellness for young children.  It is an easy to remember formula with each number representing a goal every child can aim for every day:  9 hours of sleep, 5 or more servings of fruits and vegetables, 2 hours or less of screen time, 1 hour of physical activity, and 0 sugary beverages.  The 95210 campaign is a community wide strategy designed to engender a supportive environment throughout town.


Each month the 95210 wellness campaign will be promoting different types of produce to encourage everyone to increase their intake of fruits and vegetables.  Look for facts, ideas and recipes for featured produce on school lunch menus, in grocery stores and other town buildings.  Join the campaign for a Healthier You!
