Expectant parents can take several steps to protect themselves and their babies from lead hazards.
There are several ways to reduce your child’s lead exposure at home.
Testing your child's blood for lead is the best way to tell if there's too much lead in his or her body.
Keep your kids safe by:
- Covering holes in walls
- Wash children's toys
- Wash children's hands and faces often
- Serve and store food in lead-free containers
- Avoid folk medicines and cosmetics containing lead
