How EPA is

Protecting children from the potential effects of pesticides is one of EPA’s most important responsibilities. Pesticides have widespread uses and may affect children’s health in a variety of settings. We recognize that children are at greater risk from pesticide exposure. So we set stricter standards to protect infants and children from those risks.

These web pages explain steps we are taking and things parents, caregivers, and teachers can do to protect children from pesticides where they live, learn, play and work.
