Children's Hospital celebrates child health week

Knoxville (WVLT) -  It is child health week, and Knoxville

Babies born in 2006 have a life expectancy about four months greater than children born in 2005.

Knoxville (WVLT) - It is child health week, and Knoxville's Children's Hospital is kicking things off by offering parents all the information they need to keep their children healthy.

The child health mini fair created a one-stop shop for information about all the free programs and other offerings in Knox County.

Those include the healthy weight program from the Knox County Health Department, a smoke-free program to help parents keep their kids in a healthy environment, and birth to kindergarten, a program offering tips for caring for your very young children.

Joanna Simeone who works in public relations for Children's Hospital says, "There are a lot of families out there worrying about their children's health, here's some additional info they can take home."

Organizers say the fair is a good kickoff to child health week, by offering families everything they need, right at their fingertips.
