Since Nancy and Jim Chuda founded HealthyChild in 1992 after losing their daughter Colette to cancer, they have been educating people about the link between the growing incidence of childhood diseases and environmental triggers—and what people can all do about these hazards.
HealthyChild CEO Gigi Lee Chang explains,
'This information can sometimes be overwhelming, especially for busy families. So we've streamlined and modernized our website to focus on simple actions that can be taken by anyone.'
Recognizing that parents are looking for answers to specific questions, their “Easy Steps” have been re-organized to be searchable by the categories, Life Stage, Space, Food, Condition, Chemical, and Product. It is now easier than ever to find trustworthy advice on creating healthy environments for growing children.
Together with increased functionality and edited pages, they are also unveiling a new logo. ''While capturing the spirit of Colette, it symbolizes our wish for a better world and a better future for all children,'' wrote Chang.
Check out the new web site designed to “translate the science” and empower parents to make safer better choices for their families. Readers will find suggestions and resources needed to make clean, safe choices in everyday life.
