As we go through our daily life, we encounter millions of bacteria and viruses. They reside on other people, objects, and just about everywhere. If these things are left to linger on our bodies, they can make us very sick. To protect ourselves from this there are number of healthy practices we can take on. This includes washing your hands before you have the chance to touch your mouth, nose, or eyes with bacteria that may reside on them. It also includes trimming our nails so that germs and dirt can not build up under them.
While this may seem come place to most people, not all families have the time or resources to insure their young children know all basic practices them should follow to maintain a high level of health. Those that do know the proper ways to maintain quality hygiene do not know all the steps that they should do. Most students are not aware that they should brush their teeth for a minimum of two minutes or that they should wash their hand and forearms up to their elbow.
