Make sure that your children washes their hands every after and before meals. They should also learn to do this everytime they get in contact with sick people and after going in the bathroom.

Another good practice is taking a bath often. Ensure that you have your children realize the importance of taking a bath. This practice lessens the chances of bacteria from accumulating on your body and at the same time. It washes away germs on the body and at the same time keeps the skin healthy. It is also a important that your children practices teeth brushing when they wake up, before they go to sleep and every after meals. Good oral hygiene also promotes healthy gums and fresh breath.
