Kids Health

The Nemours Center for Children's Health Media, a national leader in health education, creates KidsHealth.org as well as other online, print, and video programs.

One of the things that makes KidsHealth special is that itís really three sites in one: with sections for parents, for kids, and for teens. Included in each section is a Q&A area. All the information is available in Spanish.

The PARENTS section addresses:

  • General Health
  • Infections
  • Emotions & Behavior
  • Growth & Development
  • Nutrition & Fitness
  • Recipes
  • Pregnancy & Newborns
  • Medical Problems
  • Positive Parenting
  • First Aid & Safety
  • Doctors & Hospitals, and
  • Medications.

The KIDS section addresses:

  • Feelings
  • Staying Healthy
  • Illnesses
  • Growing Body & Mind
  • Kids Talk
  • Cooking & Recipes
  • People, Places & Things That Help
  • Staying Safe
  • Movies & Games
  • Health Problems, Kids' Dictionary of Medical Words, and
  • Health Problems of Grown-Ups.
The TEEN tab addresses:
  • Teens Home
  • Your Body
  • Your Mind
  • Sexual Health
  • Food & Fitness, Recipes
  • Drugs & Alcohol
  • Expert Answers, Diseases & Conditions, Infections, School & Jobs, and Staying Safe.
KidsHealth provides families with accurate, up-to-date, and jargon-free health information they can use.

"I am in the process of converting my moodle and portal webpages that I use in Pinellas County to my eCoach websites. I have decided to break my websites up into units instead of courses, because I keep getting switched around from various grade levels and content areas (Reading vs. Language Arts) - But I donít want to lose my lessons. For example I currently teach 7th grade reading and we do a unit on Egypt, but two years ago I taught 6th grade and we also touched on Egypt. I want my resources to be middle school level and fluid enough for me to adapt to whatever grade Iím teaching. It will take some time, but I think it will help out in the long run. Thanks again for eCoach!! I Love It!!"
