Parenting information and resources to support children’s health

What you need to know

It can be difficult to know what your baby or child needs for their health. In conjunction with your health professional, these organisations may provide helpful children’s health resources.

Child Health and Parenting Service (CHaPS)

The Child Health and Parenting Service provides free child health and development assessments for all children aged 0-5 years and a list of parent resources.

Healthy Kids

Healthy Kids gives children a healthy start to set them up for life. You’ll find key information about eating and physical activity for raising healthy Tasmanian kids.

Raising Children

Raising Children is the Australian parenting website that provides ad-free parenting videos, articles and apps backed by Australian experts.

The Royal Children’s Hospital

The Royal Children’s Hospital Melbourne offer a range of children’s health resources with fact sheets, an app and podcast for healthy kids.

Starting Blocks

Starting Blocks, from the Australian Children’s Education and Care Quality Authority, gives information on the developmental milestones in your child’s age group.

This information is general in nature and individualised medical advice should be sought from a general practitioner (GP) or appropriate medical practitioner.
