Healthy Schools, Healthy Children is one way AtlantiCare backs our commitment to take you and your family well into the future. With childhood obesity on the rise, we feel an urgent need to teach kids in our community how to eat healthy, stay active and establish wholesome habits for a lifetime. Our goal? To eliminate child obesity and all the health problems that can accompany it.

Through our partnership with local schools, we assist with the implementation of fitness and nutrition policies and make resources available to schools, students and families.

Research clearly demonstrates a strong correlation between healthy children and positive academic performance levels.
