Together Counts is a nationwide program inspiring active and healthy living. The principle behind the program is Energy Balance, which means balancing the calories we consume with the calories we burn. The website let’s you set up a group with your family, friends, co-workers, etc. and you can pledge to eat meals and do activities together. It’s the perfect way to motivate your family to be active together. The charts let you keep track of your progress and you can score points when completing these tasks. Times have changed and families are be pulled in several directions. By taking the pledge to have 1 meal a week and do 1 activity together you can help your family get back on track to a healthier lifestyle.
My family always has meals together. That is the way I was brought up and I enjoy the time we spend around the table talking about each others days. Although sometimes my little guy gets a bit chatty and won’t let anyone else talk, it still is a bonding family experience that we share together. We also actively participate in hiking, biking and sports. Spending time outside is something my family loves to do. I myself have never much of an outdoors person till I met my husband. I now enjoy so many more activities I never thought I would have guessed.
Together Counts is a first-of-its kind coalition that brings together more than 195 retailers, food and beverage manufacturers, restaurants, sporting goods and insurance companies, trade associations and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and professional sports organizations. The mission of Together Counts is to get more families eating and getting active together, with a message of moderation.

I can’t wait for my boys to get home from school so I can show them our page on Together Counts. I’m sure they’ll be as excited as I am.
