Best Health and Wellness Sites for Kids and Teens

The rapid changes that affect kids' bodies and minds can be confusing, if not scary. And talking about their feelings can be hard, so it can help them to use outside resources. These thoughtful sites give kids and teens a forum where they can ask honest questions and get candid responses about their physical and mental health. For more interactive ways for your kids to understand their health needs, check out our picks for the Best Health Apps and Games for Kids.
