What information can I find on the Children’s Health page?
Children’s Health is a section in the HealthHub mobile app and web portal. You can view and update information like your child’s height and weight, developmental milestones and birth information. For school age children, you will also be able to view your child’s health records, oral health and immunisation records if available.
Is my husband/wife able to view and edit my entries for my child?
Yes, parents are able to view and edit the health information of their child (except for records submitted by health professionals) after they have successfully added the child in the myHealth under Family Health.
Should I show the milestones and growth charts I entered to my doctors/nurses?
Yes, as this will help the doctors/nurses in their assessment.
Am I able to download/print the information from Children’s Health?
You may capture a screenshot on your mobile device or print the page using the browser on your computer.
Who can add a child?
Parents can add their child to Children's Health if the child is below 21 years old; and
*At the point of application for PR or for Naturalissed Singapore Citizenship, applicants below 21 years old must be sponsored by his/ her parent. In this case, the parent is recognised as the 'Sponsoring Parent'.
How do I add a child?
You can add a child when you go to MyHealth and click on the Children Health section and log in via Singpass.
Is there a way to add more than one child? After adding a child, I can't seem to find any way to add more children.
On the left top corner of the app, under My Health, you can choose Children's health. In that section, you would be able to add more children.
How long will my entries in Children's Health be kept?
Your entries will be kept permanently in HealthHub.
If my child is not meeting the milestone, what should I do?
The app will notify you if your child’s measurement is below or above the local growth range of others in the same age-group. You should seek the advice of your doctors/nurses during the scheduled developmental assessment of your child.
What does the percentile on the growth charts mean?
The percentile for each measurement item indicates how your child’s measurement compares with others in the same age-group for that measurement item. For example, if the height percentile for your child’s measurement is shown as 75% - this indicates that your child is as tall as or taller than 75% of children in the same age-group, whereas if the height percentile is shown as 10% - this indicates that your child is as tall as or taller than only 10% of children in the same age-group. The same applies for the percentiles for the weight, BMI or head circumference.
If I disable my push notifications, is it still possible for me to view notifications from HealthHub?

Why do I keep seeing error code I0003?

When I click on Growth Charts, the system display the error U0011. What does it mean?
This error is caused by incomplete information about the child such as incomplete Date of Birth or Gender. You may refer to the “Contact Us” section to send us your feedback.
When or how often do I need to update the milestones in the mobile app?
You are free to visit HealthHub as often as you wish. We encourage you to subscribe to the HealthHub push notification services to be kept updated on this. You will also be notified to update based on relevant milestone according to his/her age.
When or how often do I need to enter the growth information like height and weight in the mobile app?
As a child’s growth patterns can fluctuate over the various age groups, there are no standardised recommendations on how frequently their height and weight should be measured. Generally, having their height and weight measured as part of the scheduled well-baby and well-child health visits should be sufficient. Do consult your doctors or nurses for more information.
School age children are recommended to have their height and weight measured every six months to one year.
Will the system remind me on when and what to do? How often will I be reminded?
Yes, the system will notify you on relevant milestones for your child based on their age, growth related information as well as recommended readings via push notification on your mobile device.
How do I enter or view my child’s birth information, developmental milestones and growth chart in the mobile app?
You have to download the HealthHub mobile app and add a child in the myHealth selection under Family health. Click add a child, enter his/her birth certificate/NRIC and click verify. You can give your child an alias or name and upload a picture too.
I cannot enter my child’s birth information, developmental milestones and growth chart on HealthHub Portal. Why?
The HealthHub Portal is for viewing of information only. You have to download the HealthHub mobile app to enter the information.
When I enter my child’s growth information, the system shows that the measurement is out of range. What does it mean?
It means you may have entered a value that is not within the valid range for that measurement item (e.g. head circumference, height, weight). Please check the value and re-enter again.
Can I view the immunisation/vaccination records and developmental assessment entered by the doctors/nurses for my child in Children’s Health?
Immunisation/Vaccination records submitted by doctors/nurses to HPB National Immunisation Registry can be viewed here. Developmental assessment data is not available at the moment.
