The FDA is committed to assuring pediatric patients have access to safe and effective medical products. Through federal laws, pediatric research, and child-focused initiatives, the FDA supports the development and availability of drugs, biologics, and medical devices for children.

We also work to protect and promote the health of all children by empowering and supporting children and their families to foster good nutrition and by protecting children from the harmful effects of tobacco products.
