Test toddlers for lead poisoning
If you think the chipped paint around or on your window is no big deal, think again. Tere could be lead in those chips on the foor or windowsill. Lead is found in plastic or older paint, even painted toys from some countries. And it can cause lead poisoning in a young child without anyone even knowing it.
Lead poisoning happens when you get too much lead in the bloodstream. It’s invisible and has no smell, but can hurt the body’s organs, even the brain.
Children under age 6 tend to touch everything and put things into their mouths. Tis can be a problem if the items have lead or lead dust on them.
What you can do
It’s important for all children to get a blood-lead test at age 1 (12 months) and again at age 2 (24 months). Your child’s PMP can make sure your child gets a blood-lead test on schedule. If you have a toddler, ask your PMP for this free test.
You should also keep kids away from peeling paint on other surfaces. Cover peeling paint with tape. Avoid eating candies from Mexico. Look for “lead-free” labels on toys, cookware and housewares and wash kids’ hands and toys often.
