Are you looking for ways to share important health and safety topics with parents, families, and caregivers? If so, then Hip on Health is for you! This practical resource was developed to help parents, families, teachers, and caregivers learn more about keeping young children healthy and safe. Hip on Health contains information you can easily distribute on 143 different topics related to children’s growth and development, childhood illnesses, health care and illness prevention, infant care, nutrition, indoor and outdoor safety, and social-emotional behavior. Each topic in Hip on Health comes in two reproducible forms: 9 9 An 8.5 x 11-inch miniposter that you can photocopy and display. The miniposters include clear, concise content and appealing graphics to attract attention and increase awareness of important children’s health, safety, and development topics. Display the miniposters at the front desk, in the classroom, on a family-information bulletin board, in the break room, and near the main entrance—wherever they’re likely to catch attention. And with 143 different topics, you can post different miniposters each week. (There’s room saved at the bottom of each miniposter to include your organization’s logo, if you’d like to personalize the information.) 9 9 An 8.5 x 11-inch information sheet that you can photocopy and distribute. The information sheets provide more detail related to the content in the miniposters.
