Good health is one of the most important aspects of a young child's well-being.

Poor health can interfere with a child's physical development and can make it more difficult to learn. Children do best when they receive regular medical and dental care by health care providers and dentists who know them and their families. Health care is important when a child is sick, but also when a child is well, to make sure he or she stays healthy. Good nutrition and lots of physical activity can help children develop healthy lifestyles that they can continue as adults. Parents should ensure that children's homes are free of hazards that can cause injury or illness and can work to make neighborhoods safe for children to live and play.
