We Can! (Ways to Enhance Children's Activity and Nutrition)
A healthy diet is essential to help families maintain a healthy weight. While people occasionally struggle with food choices, you can learn to make healthy choices that not only taste good but are good for you. We Can! (Ways to Enhance Children's Activity & Nutrition), an educational program of the National Institutes of Health for parents of children ages eight to 13, defines food options in terms of GO, SLOW, and WHOA.
GO foods are the lowest in fat, sugar, and calories, and can be eaten almost anytime. SLOW foods are higher in fat, added sugar, and calories and should be eaten sometimes or less often. WHOA foods should only be eaten occasionally.
