Get kids hooked on health

If you're raising a little hypochondriac, or just a kid with a healthy curiosity, a site called HealthyNJ offers lots of health-related links just for them. There's a section on sickness, a section on "wellness," and a section on New Jersey, which is apparently somewhere between sickness and wellness. Among the child-friendly sites listed are a virtual hospital where kids can learn about tests they may have to take; Infection Detection Protection, with fun info about the flu and other microbe-related nastiness; sites on feelings and fillings; and pages on bike safety, boat safety, farm safety, fire safety, skate safety, internet safety, water safety, even mine safety. Sure to give your kids something to think about, or something to obsess about, one way or the other.
