Promoting Health, Preventing Illness, Protecting our Environment and Preparing for Emergencies

What is CATCH?

The Coordinated Approach to Child Health (CATCH) program brings schools, families, and communities together to teach children how to be healthy for a lifetime:  Catch Onto Health

CATCH is effective because healthy behaviors are reinforced through a coordinated approach-in the classroom, in the cafeteria, in physical education, at home, and after school.

CATCH is research-based and proven to work. And, most importantly, CATCH makes learning about nutrition and physical activity FUN!
