Grandparenting today comes with new challenges and new opportunities to help kids learn and grow. And whether grandparents are providing care to children at home, or looking for ways to stay connected virtually,it’s more important than ever for them to stay healthy and valued as an important part of the family.

In celebration of National Grandparents Day, Sesame Workshop and United Healthcare will encourage families and grandparents to stay connected, seek out nutritious foods and incorporate physical activity into their daily lives

That is where United Healthcare and Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street come in. They are partnering to support families, health care providers and communities as they help kids everywhere grow smarter, stronger and kinder. And this year, helping families connect with their grandparents, whether they’re together or apart. Rocio Galarza, Assistant Vice President of U.S. Social Impact at Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit behind Sesame Street and Lenys Alcoreza, Senior Vice President and Executive Sponsor, Diversity & Inclusion, United Healthcare join us to talk about how their organizations are honoring Grandparents this year and how the entire family can stay healthy.
