We Can! Energize Our Community: Toolkit for Action

This toolkit gives community planners a one-stop shop of planning tools, reproducible materials, and dynamic activities to help parents encourage a healthy weight in their families. The toolkit offers a six-course curriculum for parents focused on finding energy balance, increasing access and availability of healthy foods-, increasing physical activity, and reducing screen time. Community groups, health departments, and parks and recreation agencies can conduct local outreach and programming for parents, youth, and the community with the helpful tipsheets and assessment tools for working with local media and partners, and conducting community events to support the We Can! program. The kit can be downloaded in smaller component files if desired: Chapters 1 - 5 Appendix A, Part 1 Appendix A, Part 2 Appendix B Appendix C Appendix D.
