Good Health Handbook

On behalf of the Oklahoma State Department of Health, the Child and Adolescent Health Division, Maternal and Child Health Service is pleased to provide you with the most recent version of the Good Health Handbook (GHHB). This handbook will support parents and other caregivers in understanding, practicing, and teaching children the value of positive health behaviors.

The handbook will be a valuable tool in the effort of improved health in child care facilities; reduction in the spread of disease; improved nutrition and physical fitness; and increased awareness of health and safety issues among child care providers and parents.

The GHHB is presented below in it's component parts for ease in downloading and/or printing. We would appreciate your input on the revised GHHB and hope that you will take the time to fill out the survey located with the handbook sections. 

If you have any questions regarding the Good Health Handbook, please contact the Early Childhood Coordinator, Child and Adolescent Health Division, Maternal and Child Health Service at (405) 271-4471.
