Healthy Children Project

LDA believes all children deserve healthy places to live, learn, play and grow. 

That’s why our Healthy Children Project (HCP) reduces pregnant women and children’s exposure to chemicals that harm brain health by advocating for safer products, food, water and air. We also give the latest tips on how to protect your family from harmful chemicals.

The Healthy Children Project Provides:

  • Information about Toxins
    • Environmental factors, including toxic chemicals, that cause or contribute to at least a quarter of learning and developmental disabilities in American Children
  • Resources
    • Information on environmental health, toxic chemicals and initiatives to reform chemical policies from online resources and other organizations
  • Solutions
    • Raise awareness, promote policies and practices to prevent toxic chemical exposures, and build a nationwide network of LDA members working to protect children’s health
