Healthy Bodies, Healthy Minds, Healthy Parents

Good physical and mental health is one of the most important factors for babies’ and their parents’ overall wellbeing. Infants and toddlers need to be in good health to learn and grow properly. Parents need to be healthy, too, in order to provide for their families and spend quality time with their children.

  • Health Insurance. Low-income infants, toddlers, parents, and pregnant women should have quality, affordable, publicly financed health insurance.
  • Health Care Services. Infants, toddlers, parents, and pregnant women should receive appropriate health screenings, preventive primary care, and medically necessary treatment services.
  • Mental Health Services. Infants, toddlers, and parents should receive appropriate screening, diagnosis, and treatment services to meet their mental health needs.
  • Nutrition Assistance. Low-income families with infants and toddlers and pregnant women should have access to nutrition support programs.
