CATCH is a platform that launches kids and communities toward healthier futures. CATCH employs a holistic approach to child health promotion by targeting multiple aspects of the school environment: the classroom, Child Nutrition Services, physical education (PE), parents, and the broader school community. This coordinated approach repeatedly reinforces CATCH lessons and life skills, and is a big part of what makes the program highly effective.
CATCH is research-based and proven to work. And, most importantly, CATCH makes nutrition learning and physical activity FUN!
The CATCH team organizes trainings and provides equipment and materials for pre-K, elementary, middle, and after-school programs. Following training, implementers can look to the CATCH Coordination Guide for detailed directions and assistance through the process of implementation.
