Gov. Reynolds used a stop in Ames Tuesday to lanuch a new program to fight childhood obesity. She announced a statewide childhood health campaign called 5210 - Healthy Choices Count. The obesity prevention program focuses on the importance of four simple daily health habits for kids. It includes five or more servings of fruits and vegetables a day, two hours or less of screen time on TVs, computers and video games, one hour or more of physical activity and no sugar-sweetened drinks.
During the Ames event, Reynolds also says her grandchildren shouldn't be subject to the online attacks they had to endure. At her weekly news conference, she says a Facebook post of her grandchildren playing soccer generated comments she said weren't nice. Reynolds said she expects attacks on her as governor, but emphasized that her grandchildren shouldn't be brought into those attacks.
