To support pediatricians and families a number of interactive tools were developed. These tools include two interactive and embeddable widgets and the HALF "app."

  • The "Quick Tips: Keep Your Child Healthy" widget allows patients to get tailored, realistic, parent-derived and evidence informed action strategies about areas of healthy active living that are most important to them. Topics include breastfeeding, bottle-feeding, starting solid foods, picky eaters, snack time, routines, physical activity, screen time and sleep. Explore the widget and learn how you can embed the widget onto your practice's web site.
  • The "Are You Raising a Healthy, Active Child?" quiz widget is a fun way to dispel some of the common myths around food and feeding, physical activity, and healthy active living. Take the quiz and review the directions to embed the widget on your practice own web site.
  • The HealthyGrowth app gives care providers the unique ability to create custom handouts for parents on vital topics of healthy growth, nutrition, and physical activity for children 5 years of age and younger. The app is available on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store.
