This educational health site produced by Children’s Hospital Boston includes health guides for young men on a wide range of topics, including general physical health, emotional health, and sexual health. There are also a few guides aimed at parents. The sexuality and health section includes factual information about birth control and STD prevention and offers resources for teens who are unsure of their sexual orientation. Parents may want to review the sexuality sections since every family has different opinions on the best approach to discussing sex and sexual health.

This website provides health education from grades three and up; they have a curriculum that talks about healthy eating. There are interactive games and activities like quizlets that allow students to learn healthy eating. This website also provides nutritional topics that would enable students to understand the values of a particular food and the proportions of what to eat each day.

Despite its commercial sponsorship, this is an excellent site that provides scientifically-based information on nutrition. Resources appear to be free to all users. The site is a collaborative effort of farmers and non-profit organizations centered in California. (MSF, 20220102)

Amaze creates animated short videos designed to help kids learn about sexual education, their changing bodies, and positive relationships. Sexual topics are covered in an informative way, without sensationalizing content. Registration isn’t required to use this video-centered site, but with an account, custom playlists can be created and shared with students. Users can’t comment on videos that are housed on the site, so there’s little chance kids will see foul language or inappropriate banter. The homepage includes links to their videos, toolkits, and lesson plans for educators.
