Help Your Child Stay at a Healthy Weight 
How to help your child stay at a healthy weight by balancing what your child eats with physical activity.

Written by Leslie Bricusse and Anthony Newley. 

Who can take a sunrise,
Sprinkle it with dew?
Cover it in chocolate and a miracle or two
The candyman, the candyman can,
The candyman can 'cause he mixes it with love
and makes the world taste good

Who can take a rainbow,
Wrap it in a sigh?
Soak it in the sun and make the stra'bry lemon pie
The candyman? The candyman can
The candyman can 'cause he mixes it with love
and makes the world taste good

The Candyman makes
everything he bakes
Satisfying and delicious.
Talk about your childhood wishes.
You can even eat the dishes!

Who can take tomorrow,
Dip it in a dream?
Separate the sorrow and collect up all the cream,
The candyman? The Candyman can, the candyman can
The candyman can 'cause he mixes it with love
and makes the world taste good
And the world tastes good
'cause the candyman thinks it should.


From the Warner Bros. movie "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory" (1971), sung by Aubrey Woods. Also performed by Sammy Davis, Jr.
