How can I protect my child?
Keep your child away from areas of chipping and flaking paint. Wash your child's hands, toys and pacifiers frequently. Provide your child with a diet rich in calcium, iron and protein, and low in fats and oils. Because dirt may contain lead, have your children play in grassy areas and take off their shoes before entering the house. If you work with lead in your job or hobby, change your clothes and shower before entering your home.
