Developed by the Department of Extension, College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources at the University of Connecticut, Tools for Healthy Living is an educational program to teach youth in grades 4-6 how to make and keep their homes and their food as healthy and safe as possible. Topics include lead poisoning, dust and mold, pests, food safety, cleanliness, and clutter.
The National Center for Healthy Housing estimates that 35 million metropolitan U.S. homes have one or more health and safety hazards that could cause significant illness, injury, or death. For example, an estimated 20-30% of asthma cases are linked to home environmental conditions and more than 24 million homes have lead-based paint hazards. A healthy home is one that is free of such hazards, one that supports the health and safety of the people who live there.
