American Academy of Pediatrics HealthyChildren.org [web resource]

healthykids_orgThe American Academy of Pediatrics is an organization of  66​,000 pediatricians committed to the optimal physical, mental, and social health and well-being for all infants, children, adolescents, and young adults.​ In 2009, the AAP launched HealthyChildren.org to provide parents with health information from a trustworthy source.

HealthyChildren.org is divided into multiple sections, including:

  • Ages & Stages: Information on the health issues of infants through adolescents, including interactive content on developmental milestones
  • Healthy Living: Up-to-date guidance on fitness, sports, oral health, emotional wellness and nutrition
  • Safety & Prevention: Preparing for health scenarios that occur at home, school and on the go, as well as in-depth information on the immunizations children need to stay healthy
  • Family Life: Guidance on working with your primary care physician, family dynamics, the impact of media on children, and keeping children safe at work and play

Also check out the Tips and Tools area of the site, which includes app recommendations, Q & A with pediatricians, a symptom checker, e-newsletters and magazine, webinars, and more. Many HealthyChildren.org resources are also available in Spanish.


If you have concerns about your child, you can arrange a free 30-minute Care Consultation to explore options with an expert. We invite you to call or email our Clinical Services Coordinators at 650.688.3625 or careteam@chconline.org to set up an initial Parent Consultation appointment.
