HealthyChildren.org, the official American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) website for parents, is now available as a free app for Apple and Android smartphones and tablets. It can be downloaded from the Apple app store (search “Healthy Children AAP”) or the Google Play store.
Within the app parents can look up age-by-age health information for their children, check immunization schedules, access first-aid how-to information, and other resources in a new format designed for tablets and smartphones. Automatic updates to the app will keep parents informed of new features, including the newly launched Healthy Children e-Magazine, and new apps such as an ADHD tracker and a car seat checker.
While we are always available to answer your questions and see your children, the Healthy Children app is a welcome resource for on the go information.
