Kids Health
KidsHealth from the Nemours Foundation is an award-winning site packed with reliable information for kids, teens and parents. One of the things that makes KidsHealth special is that it's really three sites in one with sections for parents, for kids, and for teens.

KidsHealth is the most-visited site on the Web for information about health, behavior, and development from before birth through the teen years. On a typical weekday, KidsHealth gets more than 700,000 visits.

KidsHealth is more than just the facts about health. As part of The Nemours Foundation's Center for Children's Health Media, KidsHealth also provides families with perspective, advice, and comfort about a wide range of physical, emotional, and behavioral issues that affect children and teens.
