Children Safety Information
Welcome to our Website!
Due to the ever-increasing importance of children's health issues, Children's Health and Safety Association's mission is to continue the work that Children's Safety Association of Canada has accomplished for the past twenty years and provide up-to-date and vital health information for every concerned parent.
Our children's eating habits have changed so much that heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure and a myriad of other adult diseases are plaguing them at an unforeseen rate - and the statistics are staggering. One in four young children in Canada are overweight or obese and only 7% get the recommended sixty minutes of exercise daily. We will address children's health issues and concerns as a proactive measure to help sustain children's health and well-being and exemplify why parents can no longer afford to be complacent with processed food.

3 INCIDENCES of CHILDREN FALLING OUT of WINDOWS – A 3-year-boy is in serious condition with a cracked skull and hip injury after falling out of a 2nd storey window on May 30th in West Sacramento, California. "Kids are wily and they're very curious, so if they have the ability to pull on a screen and get it open and lean out, there is a great likelihood we are going to see more accidents like this," said Lt. Deanna Stevens.
A three-year-old boy is fighting for his life in intensive care after he fell from a 6th floor apartment window yesterday in Rzeszow, Poland. The boy is being treated for multiple injuries including a fractured skull.
A three-year-old child is in hospital suffering from injuries after falling from a 2nd storey window in Mississauga, Ontario on May 1st. Const. George Tudos said it was too early to determine if neglect or abuse is a factor. The investigation is ongoing.
