Parent Program We Can! (Ways to Enhance Children’s Activity & Nutrition) is a national movement designed to give parents, caregivers, and entire communities a way to help children 8 to 13 years old stay at a healthy weight.
The We Can Energize our Families: Parent program is a four session program with dynamic activities for parents to encourage a healthy weight for their families.

The core concept explored is “energy balance” or the long-term balance between ENERGY IN(calories from food) and ENERGY OUT (calories burned through activity). In a fun and hands-on way, the sessions focus on helping participants learn essential skills that can help their families make healthful food choices, become more physically active and reduce recreational screen time.
