Children and fetuses are particularly at risk from toxic chemicals. Pregnant women and parents/guardians should take extra care to reduce their exposure and their children's exposure to toxics.
Why are children at great risk for exposure to toxic chemicals?
What you can do?
Follow these simple ways to reduce exposures:
Ensure your child is getting proper nutrition, physical activity and sleep. Children who get the recommended daily amounts of essential vitamins and minerals are less likely to absorb lead and other toxics. Visit www.choosemyplate.gov for great tips to keep your kids healthy.
Choose safer building and home repair materials.
