What We Do

From the moment our children are born, we want the best for them—and that includes keeping them healthy. But with our ultra-busy lives, finding solutions to our biggest parenting challenges can be overwhelming. That’s why Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta created Strong4Life.com.

Strong4Life equips parents to better deal with everything from bedtime battles to picky eaters to avoiding the fast-food trap. How? With easy tips, facts and advice from our doctors, nutritionists and wellness experts, who are parents too. At Strong4Life, we believe it’s a priority for parents to teach their kids early to eat well and be active, because the older they get, the harder it is to break bad habits. At Strong4Life.com you’ll find everything you need to give your kids the right start.
