Kids Considered™

Kids Considered™ is a UC Davis Children’s Hospital podcast, featuring two pediatricians who discuss child health topics of interest to parents in plain, non-medical language. New subjects are considered in every episode, discussing issues that apply from healthy pregnancy to birth to teen years. We have different styles of practice and viewpoints, but our goals are the same: we want to optimize children’s health and development, and help parents understand current recommendations and why policies are the way they are. We aim to provide accurate and timely information in an entertaining manner to increase the confidence of parents as they address the sometimes confusing parenting issues of our day. Although our podcast is aimed mainly for parents, pediatricians and other health care providers might find our discussions of interest. And children might want to get a behind the scenes look at what their parents are listening to.
