These websites contain health information. Many are nutrition-related, and most include information about early childhood.
Evaluating Web Sources
Things to consider when doing research online:
- How up-to-date is the information? When was it published or updated?
- Do you need to update some of it?
- Is it relevant? For example, if it's the laws around child care facilities, is it for BC? If it's nutritional information, is it the same guide that your employer uses?
- Is it suitable for your audience? For example, is information for parents in a suitable language?
- Who wrote the information?
- Are they experts on the topic?
- Is the information correct, or does it contradict what you know from your textbooks?
- Why was it written? (To help you take care of children?)
- Do the authors want to sell you something?
