Good habits start during childhood but for those without health insurance, there isn'st always someone to help kids stay on track with preventative checkups. Thirteen percent of children in Maine are overweight and 44 percent missed out on seeing both a dentist and a doctor last year. Another 68 percent got counseling or treatment for mental, developmental or emotional disorders.

Even the most basic healthcare policy can help take care of these issues and for a minimal cost.
