It's important to always wash your hands. After touching the ground, after playing with your toys, handling food you're eating, blowing your nose, sneezing, touching your pet, taking out the garbage or handling rubbish, coughing, going to the bathroom, and especially if you're sick.

The perfect hand washing recipe to follow, lots of foamy soap, plenty of time to scrub-a-dub-dub, lashings of splashing's, and a nice dry towel to finish the perfect hand washing routine.
As most of us know, there are some very picky eaters out there! Is that you? That's okay, we were all picky eaters at some stage in our life.

Eating your fruits and vegetables is just as important as washing your hands. They help us grow up big and strong! Many fruits and vegetables hold vitamins and nutrients that are essential for body growth and vital for our bodies to function properly.
Maybe you have a favourite fruit or vegetable?
Research says, we can touch our face up to 16 times an hour. Little do we know, the amount of damage this causes.

Our eyes and mouth are where viruses and bacteria enter the body the easiest, which can quickly cause sickness or infection to rage through our body.

Remember, always wash your hands followed by some hand sanitiser after touching your face!
When you aren't feeling well, it's important to stay home. Even if you're happy and want to go out, your germs can be spread far too easily. As much as you'd love to be back at school and hanging out with your friends, you don't want to spread your germs to anyone.

The best thing to do is to stay home and rest until you are well enough to go back to school.
Your friends will thank you for it!
Sometimes, life can be a bit too much. With the stresses of school and homework, the annoying things your younger siblings do, doing too many chores, or just having too many friends you don't know who to pick for your football team!

It's easy to forget how to relax. A few deep breaths always help! Deep breath in... and breathe out. Try this a few times, even with your eyes closed, and see how you feel.
