UnitedHealthcare

UnitedHealthcare shares Sesame Street’s passion for encouraging kids to be healthy and stay healthy. UnitedHealthcare serves more than 10 million children through individual, employer and state Medicaid benefit plans.

A proud sponsor of Sesame Street, UnitedHealthcare is a long-time supporter of nutritional, exercise and obesity-avoidance programs and supports a wide range of initiatives and services across the country that promote healthy habits for life. Healthy children equal stronger communities, and UnitedHealthcare has partnered with Sesame Workshop to provide the resources children need to grow healthy and stay healthy.

Sesame Street and UnitedHealthcare: Partners in Healthy Habits for Life

With the Healthy Habits for Life partnership, UnitedHealthcare and Sesame Workshop offer tools to help parents and caregivers gain a greater understanding of the relationship between healthy habits and children’s healthy growth. UnitedHealthcare supports the following Sesame Workshop initiatives: Food for Thought: Eating Well on a Budget, Lead Away!, A is for Asthma and We have the Moves.

Together, UnitedHealthcare and Sesame Workshop developed Food for Thought: Eating Well on a Budget, a bilingual multimedia education outreach program aimed at helping low-income families make food choices that are affordable and nutritional and that set the foundation for lifelong healthy habits. Program outreach includes bilingual kits with an original DVD featuring the Sesame Street Muppets, a documentary showing families using a variety of strategies for maintaining healthy lifestyles despite limited financial resources, a parent/caregiver guide, child-friendly recipes, a children’s storybook, plus resources to help families make choices that lead to healthy growth.

Lead Away! provides families with bilingual resources designed to increase awareness about the health risks of lead, and to teach parents and children effective strategies to avoid lead exposure. The resources meet a critical need for education on the dangers of lead. Through easy-to-implement activities and simple tips, the materials help parents and children work together to keep lead away.

A is for Asthma provides families with bilingual resources designed to increase their understanding and awareness of asthma. Asthma is one of the leading causes of emergency room admissions for children. By providing simple tips and positive activities for children, the project helps families learn to recognize asthma triggers and manage asthma symptoms. The materials encourage parents and caregivers to communicate closely with their child, other caregivers and their doctor to help their child maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.

We have the Moves provides bilingual educational resources designed to help families incorporate physical activity into their daily routines. Materials include a Sesame Street music CD featuring interactive music, activity cards, fitness challenge and activity tracker. By providing tips and tools, families have the opportunity to have fun and be active together.
