A new educational health website geared for kids called HealthRock has been launched to coincide with the start of the new school year.
The interactive, upbeat website was conceived to help parents and children learn about health issues in a fun, educational way that leads to positive behaviour change.

HealthRock.com is the "baby" of Dr. Machelle M. Seibel - a Professor of obstetrics and gynaecology at the University of Massachusetts, and Editor in Chief of Sexuality, Reproduction and Menopause, a journal of the American Society for Reproductive Medicine.

Combining his expertise with his passion for writing and recording music, he created the HealthRock CD series combining fun music with public health/wellness messages. The new interactive website expands the concept with music downloads, animation, games and other features:

? Songs geared for kids about nutrition, hygiene, smoking, obesity, and much more. Selections include "It's Time to Take a Bath," "Exercise," "The Heart is a Pump," "B.O." and "I'm Best at Being Me," among other upbeat songs designed to teach valuable lessons to kids and help parents discuss difficult or important topics with their kids.
? Engaging cartoons that add graphics to songs such as "Phat Fat Rap," "Healthy Bones," "Zitz," and more.
? A fun, interactive game called "Help Skelly" where kids can use their mouse to put together a dancing skeleton on a skateboard.
? Short e-Books geared to teachers, parents and caregivers that can be downloaded and used in conjunction with the topics covered on the HeathRock website.
? "Ask Dr. S" - a Question and Answer section.
