Parents often wonder about their child’s health, growth and development, leading to the question: "Is my child healthy and growing and developing normally?" On this website you can find reliable parent-friendly resources to help answer your questions about your child.
We try to keep these links up to date, but websites are constantly being restructured, so if a link is broken, go to the home page of the source (e.g. The Canadian Paediatric Society - Caring for Kids; Hospital for Sick Children - About Kids Health; Parachute; Dietitians of Canada; Health Canada) and search within that website.
