Greg Partridges human body sites.

The web site focuses on dental care. The site looks at food and drink that can affect your teeth, visiting the dentist, when to eat and advice on looking after infant and young children's teeth.

I have also found another site on dental care. This one is specifically focused on children and looks closely into what can harm your teeth and how to prevent problems in your teeth. Andrea Owens healthy body sites. - this site has a link, which is designed specifically for children. It gives information with students can easily understand. - Lead a healthier lifestyle. It's never too late to change - establish good habits now and you'll continue to reap the benefits

Perhaps you could also consider the 'sun smart' message and remind students of the importance of "slip, slop, slap" when they go outside in the sun.
