According to the experts' perspectives, the meaning of health literacy to children is "to perform physical and psycho-social activities with appropriate standards; being able to interact with people; cope with necessary changes and demand reasonable autonomy so as to achieve complete physical, mental and social well-being". In order to assist children develop healthy physical, psycho-social well-being so as to demonstrate that they are health literate, parents, teachers and significant others have to support and guide the children by demonstrating good practices regarding health-related behaviors. The study serves as a reference for developing healthy childhood that leads to healthy adulthood and healthy elderly.
