Fit Kids Playground is proud to show that we are a We Can!™ community site!
We Can!™ or “Ways to Enhance Children’s Activity & Nutrition” is a national program designed for families and communities to help children maintain a healthy weight. The program focuses on three important behaviors: improved food choices, increased physical activity and reduced screen time.
We Can!™ stands for Ways to Enhance Children’s Activity & Nutrition. We Can! is a national education program designed for parents and caregivers to help children 8-13 years old stay at a healthy weight. Parents and caregivers are the primary influencers for this age group. We Can! offers parents and families tips and fun activities to encourage healthy eating, increase physical activity and reduce sedentary or screen time. It also offers community groups and health professionals resources to implement programs and fun activities for parents and youth in communities around the country.
Fit Kids Playground provides We Can! material, handbooks, resources to parents attending our events or parent classes. We have been a community site since 2009 and have been awarded the 2011 and 2012 assistance grants from the We Can!™ organization to help us impact our community through organizing community events that promote health and wellness to kids and families as well as parent education classes that also inspire conversation among parents to collaborate about how to keep children healthy.
