Our core content at Children for Health is something unique to us: the 100 health messages for children to learn and share.
As well as using more traditional methods, social media and mobile technology can be used to reach children and their families with these nuggets of distilled information.
These health messages are the product of an involved process that combines our skills in working with children aged 8-13 in the classroom together with our skills in sourcing and distilling health information from high level academic and other sources.
We identified 10 health topics and for each topic we identified the top 10 things children should know about this topic.
On the one hand feedback has been that this feels like too many messages for children to learn and on the other hand people wish to add many more messages to the lists! We are working with teachers to understand how children memorise the messages, the methods they use and what needs to happen in order for the messages to become completely unforgettable!
Unforgettable messages MUST be accurate and we are committed to ensuring accuracy and suitability for the 8 and over age group.
