Developed with the help of over 60 children from local primary schools, the unique website is the first NHS website that has been created especially for children to learn about staying healthy and looking after their health.
The website features a diverse range of health topics from bullying to brushing teeth, allergies to bereavement. The games, videos, and interactive content has been written and overseen by experts from across LPT services including school nursing, health improvement, smoking cessation, dietetics, paediatricians and mental health.
The website content is presented through four themed worlds:
1. ‘Rumble in the Jungle’ (Staying Healthy),
2. ‘Water World’ (Feelings),
3. ‘Space World’ (Illness)
4. ‘Magical World’ (Getting help).
Each ‘world’ presents health advice through fun facts, quizzes, games or film. There is also have a separate section for parents and teachers to provide further advice.
We have created a page about Health for Kids in our Pupil Zone which you can visit by clicking this link.
