HealthLit4Kids is an education program designed for use in schools. Teachers invite children to participate in classroom-based health literacy development activities. The learning culminates with the development of an Artefact (creative piece accompanied with a description). Consent must be obtained from a parent or guardian and the child prior to uploading the HealthLit4Kids Artefact to the Open Education Resource and prior to the inclusion of each Artefact in research and evaluation. English is an additional language for 30% of the families at 2 of the 5 schools currently engaged with HealthLit4Kids, and limited literacy made it difficult to engage with "traditional" information sheets and informed consent processes. In response to these identified needs, the researchers developed a short, animated resource to support an informed consent process: 1. HealthLit4Kids Information Video 2. Parent/Child Information and Consent Video 3. Parent Term 1 Focus Group Information and Consent Video 4. Parent Term 3 Focus Group Information and Consent Video
