    Could 'attend to the needs of' be a good explanation to the phrasal verb 'look after'

    Hi teachers,
    Could 'attend to the needs of' be a good explanation to the phrasal verb 'look after'?

    Thanks in advance.

    It's okay. At the very least, if you look after someone or something, you ensure no harm comes to it/them.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
