We’ve seen the effects of unhealthy lifestyles – poor mental health, bullying, lowered academic performance, less social interaction and play, and reduced life expectancy. The AdvoCare Foundation is committed to helping children live safe, happy and healthy lives. Join us.
Our children's lives have become more sedentary

More than 15 million children in the U.S. experience food insecurity each year when families have limited access to nutritious food.
