Celebrate Mothers Who Protect Children's Health

Mothers want to do everything possible to help their children develop into healthy adults. This month, CDC urges mothers to protect themselves and their children from the dangers of smoking and exposure to secondhand smoke and also encourages family members to support moms in maintaining a tobacco-free life. Below is a list of the communication materials created in preparation for Mother’s Day.

CDC Feature Article: Celebrate Moms Who Protect Children’s Health
This article:
  • Presents key information about the harms of tobacco use and exposure to secondhand smoke 
  • Shares the stories of three moms from CDC’s Tips From Former Smokers campaign:

    • Terrie, a grandmother who quit smoking for her grandchildren
