A Healthier Florida Starts Here.

Approximately one third of Florida's youth is overweight or obese. And the number is even higher among low-income and minority populations.

Unfortunately, the solution isn't as easy as moving more and eating less.

Embrace a Healthy Florida seeks to remove the very real barriers that stand between children, healthy food choices and physical activity.

An initiative of the Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Florida Foundation, this effort offers resources and funding to organizations to provide solutions that help reduce childhood obesity.

By bringing these stakeholders together, we serve as a vital link in this critical effort.
