Everybody hates the cold and flu season, but no one more than parents with school-aged kids. Schools can be prime breeding grounds for germs and at this time of year, most parents worry about their children getting sick.
A recent survey revealed that one in six Australian mums said their biggest concern when their child is at school is the chance they will get sick. The study also found that even though the majority of mothers teach their kids healthy hygiene habits at home, they are not always being continued at school.
To make sure healthy hygiene habits are a part of your child’s daily routine, Canowindra mums and dads can encourage primary schools to sign up for the Healthy Habits Schools Program.
Healthy Habits is a free initiative from Dettol available to all schools in Australia. The program has been specifically developed to make learning about healthy habits fun, covering all the elements of a healthy lifestyle. There are a range of engaging activities including simple experiments, song, dance and games to educate and entertain on the important topic of hygiene.
