Sometimes it can be difficult to quickly and easily find accurate information that you can share with your kids about health, their bodies, eating well and exercising. However, many reputable organizations offer free health, nutrition and fitness information to parents and kids. Here's a list of great websites that everyone in the family can enjoy!|
Dr. Bill Sears, a renowned pediatrician, father of eight, and author of over 30 childcare books, along with his wife (a nurse) and two of his sons (both doctors) teamed up to create the information on this helpful website.
From pregnancy to childbirth, breastfeeding to family nutrition, this site is an excellent source for new parents or any parent with young children. Information on parenting styles and discipline is also current and helpful. The site is easy to navigate, well-organized, and even offers free email newsletters as well as a section of recommended links and resources on pregnancy, parenting, and pediatric topics.
The KidsHealth website has three main sections, one for parents, a second for kids, and a third for teens. Each section contains age-appropriate information for that audience, on everything from health, diseases and conditions, nutrition, sleep, fitness, emotions, and how the body works. Everything on this site is also available in Spanish!
