Children’s health is at the center of all we do

Children’s health and well-being are the backbone of our work. When it comes to the impact of toxic chemicals, children aren’t just small adults –their developing bodies make them especially vulnerable.  

At EWG, we focus on what environmental research says about what’s safe for children and what’s not, including: 

- How your family can start eating healthier
- Avoiding the impact of toxic chemicals
- Choosing safer products for your kids 

Featured guide

EWG has compiled information on our top resources — consumer guides, tip sheets and videos to make it easier for parents and caregivers to make safer and healthier decisions when it comes to getting your family to start eating healthier, avoiding the impact of toxic chemicals, choosing safer products for your kids, and more.
