Together Counts Ambassador Program
I am so excited to share with you that I will be working this year as an ambassador for the Together Counts Program. Together Counts is a non-profit program centered on the idea of getting families healthy together, with the message of “calories in and calories out.” Together Counts was started by The Healthy Weight Commitment Foundation, with the goal of reducing childhood obesity by 2015. It’s a coalition of more than 200 retailers, food and beverage manufacturers, non-profits and more who all serve as key partners.
Together Counts is exactly the type of program that fits perfectly with our family lifestyle. We are active, healthy, and happy. As every family, we have our daily struggles, but as a parent, I truly believe that we are role models for our children. They will do, say, and act exactly how their parents do. It is up to us, as parents, to be what we want our children to be. If they see their parents active, they will want to do the same. If they see us snacking on fruits and veggies when we are hungry, they will too.
I will be participating throughout the year with Together Counts and will be linking to all the exciting ideas and info that my fellow ambassadors have to share. It’s the perfect motivation to start or continue with a healthy, active family life 🙂
For more info, you can follow Together Counts on Face Book, Twitter, Pinterest, and their Blog.
Congratulations, Estela! What an awesome accomplishment! I look forward to reading all of the Together Counts blogs. We are trying to get our family to eat more healthy foods and snacks and exercise more…it is a challenge, but one we hope to win.
Congratulations Estela. I am so proud of all your accomplishments. Your girls are beautiful and so lucky to have you as their mommy.
What a cool program! I’m excited to read more about the program and what you share here with us. 🙂 As an RD to be (this summer) I am really drawn to spreading any info that we can about preventing even more childhood obesity.
I volunteer with Cooking Matters (part of Share our Strength) teaching the nutrition portion of the lesson plans to parents/grandparents and their kids. Each week we emphasize healthy eating, being active, and sharing meals together as a family. The nice thing is that we build on last weeks lesson each week with a new lesson. Very exciting!
