Healthy Child Healthy World ignites the movement that empowers parents to protect children from harmful chemicals.
With a growing body of evidence linking everyday environmental contaminants to asthma, learning disabilities, obesity, cancer and more, Healthy Child translates the science and inspires parents and caregivers to create healthy environments where families can flourish.
For the past two decades Healthy Child Healthy World has been the nation's leading organization of its kind. We:
- Expand awareness of unnecessary toxic risks to children's health;
- Encourage easy actions and responsible lifestyle choices;
- Advocate for corporate policies and government legislation that protect children from environmental health risks; and,
- Engage communities to take collective actions to create a healthier world.
Healthy Child Healthy World was founded by James and Nancy Chuda in 1992 after their daughter Colette died from Wilm's tumor — a rare form of non-hereditary cancer. Healthy Child is a national, non-profit 501(c) 3 organization headquartered in Los Angeles. Healthy Child is governed by an outstanding volunteer Board of Directors and distinguished group of advisors and is strengthened by community and corporate partners. Healthy Child is playing a leadership role in one of the most important public health and environmental movements of the 21st century.
