Websites for Parents
The internet offers a wealth of information, but it can be a challenge to separate quality from quackery. Look for sites run by government and nonprofit organizations. They are usually the most objective and reliable. Check to see if the site has been updated recently as health information changes quickly.
Listed below are a few sites that we like at Sansum Clinic. Browse through them and be sure to share what you learn with your health care provider. He or she can help you tailor the information to your specific needs.
American Academy of Pediatrics (www.healthychildren.org)
Centers for Disease Control (www.CDC.gov)
Healthy Activity and Eating:
Choose My Plate (www.choosemyplate.gov)
Let’s Move! (www.letsmove.gov)
Start Walking Now (www.startwalkingnow.org)
