    As mothers, we all want to be cautious and aware of the possible risks that our environment may have on our children. Though we cannot remove every harmful exposure that may come about, there are steps that we can take to help better our little ones' safety and health.

    WebMD's health-e head2toe tool is a great resource for all of us parents to check on how environmental exposure may be affecting our children. Please try out the tool and leave any feedback below. :)
    Best Wishes!
