Our passion is to create a more peaceful, healthy world by helping you raise healthy, happy, thriving, emotionally secure kids.
Rest easy knowing that your children are protected
We help you make simple choices that will eliminate the most threatening toxic exposures. We provide clear solutions and offer only products we’ve thoroughly researched and vetted for safety—products we trust for our own children.
We are moms and we understand
We are parents – we understand what you’re going through, we empathize with your challenges, and we are supportive of your parenting journey. We care deeply about children and we care about our customers.
We are moms with almost 30 years combined parenting experience with children ages 23 through 50 and grandchildren between the ages of 6 and 13! We have gained a lot of education, wisdom and insight raising kids, and can help you keep your family safe, healthy and happy. We genuinely care about you and we provide exceptional support. We support you to do what you CAN do and let go of the rest.
We love being mentors and inspiration for other mamas!
The Healthy Child story
Our founder, Jane Sheppard, started Healthy Child in 1997, shortly after becoming a mother. She learned about the toxic threats to her own child and how to reduce exposures. Jane became passionate about examining the research and sharing with other parents. She formed an advisory board of doctors and scientists, and the Healthy Child Newsletter was born.
Most mattress, bedding and furniture products on the market are toxic and unsafe for babies and children. And most homes are lacking in pure air and water. So we made it our mission to find healthy alternatives and make them available at Healthy Child. It’s our passion to provide you with reliable, truthful and substantial information about each product so you can make a truly informed decision.
Our guiding principle
Our founder’s mission of safeguarding babies and children so they will thrive is the Guiding Principle that drives everything we do at Healthy Child. If you’re in search of safe products, peace of mind, and the truth – you’ve come to the right place.
Integrity and authenticity
Our promise to you is to do business with integrity. We take the time to understand the science and we question the manufacturers so that you don’t have to—so that you can spend your precious time with your family instead.
We know and understand toxins – specifically how chemical exposures affect babies and children. We’ve been in business for nearly two decades, and we continue to research all our products extensively.
Here is what we guarantee:
- Safe Materials-We know which materials to avoid and which ones are harmless.
- Transparency– We carefully select manufacturers that are open and transparent and only when we get confirmation that products are up to our strict safety standards do we offer them on our site.
- Reliable Information-We provide you with all the information you need to make a clear choice. No green-washing, no worries.
