The Healthy Okaloosa initiative uses consistent messaging in multiple settings to reach families where they live, learn, work and play. The Healthy Okaloosa 5210 message promotes 5 more fruits and vegetables daily, limiting recreational screen time to 2 hours, engaging in physical activity for 1 hour and cutting back on sugar sweetened beverages, preferably to 0. 

DOH-Okaloosa publicly celebrates organizations which are committed to a Healthy Okaloosa culture, where we all benefit from lower healthcare costs, healthier employees and families, and a happy, healthy lifestyle in Okaloosa County! Healthy Okaloosa Worksites recognizes organizations that meet specific worksite wellness standards, with sustainable policy and environmental strategies that support physical activity, healthy eating, breastfeeding support, and being tobacco free.
