Good hygiene habits are good for us, but they’re even better for those around us. Why? Because kids can’t help but pick up what they see around them. So, to protect the ones we love the most, it’s time we lead by example – let’s make good hygiene habits infectious!
- Wiping your child's bottom (front to back) until they learn how to do it themselves.
- Floating a ping pong ball in the toilet to help boys aim and minimise mess. Or, ask if they want to wee sitting down.
- Showing your child how to flush – this can be scary for some kids! Stay calm and give simple, clear reassurance.
- Don’t let raw meat or meat juices come into contact with other foods – use a separate cutting board and knife for raw meat
- Always wipe down and dry kitchen benches and tables after preparing or serving food on them
- Clean sponges and dish brushes after each use – either rinse them in hot water and wring them out, or put them in the dishwasher on a hot cycle.
