Session 3: The benefits of promoting children’s health


In this session you will explore health promotion and start by looking at defining what this means. The content looks at the benefits of promoting babies and young children’s health and look at the benefits in relation to the individual child, all children, families and all of society. You will return to the issue of poverty and identify some of the reasons living in poverty causes health inequalities. You will compare living in poverty in an inner-city area with a rural area.
