In this section of the site you’ll find lots of advice on how to keep children healthy and what to do when they are under the weather as well as tips for improving diet, the importance of sleep and relaxation, looking after your child’s mental health, children's eyesight, personal hygiene, threadworms and head lice.
You can also visit our friendly Forum where you can put your questions to other parents.
