Wee Care Children's Foundation is a non profit organisation focused on children's health, welllness and nutrition. The group teamed up with the Ministry of Health taking part in healthcare demonstrations across the country under the banner of its campaign ‘Fight the FAT… A National Wellness Revolution’.

The colour scheme of the logo draws inspiration from the U.S "Choose My Plate" campaign, which employs the use of a sectioned plate to illustrate relative portion size and the required food groups per meal, as opposed to the traditional food pyramid visual.

The Wee Care group and the paediatricians of the Wendy Fitzwilliam Pediatric Hospital in conjunction with the Ministry of Health hosted "Wee Fit" wellness camp over July 2012.
