Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Everything is in a legitimate context

Some kids may stray onto the Teen and Parent sections (e.g. finding out where babies come from), but all articles (including those about reproductive health and/or those which use reproductive organs) are presented in a medical/clinical/health and educational context (search results are no longer filtered e.g. searching on the Kids section will limit results to the Kids section before this change) and are reviewed by named health professionals. Finally, this online portal does a good job with diversity re. diverse representations of people.

Great health site for kids

I am a bit partial to this site as I was one of the developers of the site years ago. It is a GREAT site full of health information. There are a few quirks in navigation but for most you'll not see much of a problem. The content is safe for most kids and written at their level. Parents can also benefit from a read through as the explainations may help you figure out how to explain various health issues to kids
