As much as we would love to be at our child’s school and make sure they are doing their job of washing their hands, keeping fingers out of their mouth and not sharing food or drinks, it’s hard to see what goes on when we aren’t around. However, we can do our part to make sure we can prevent illness as much as possible at home and by packing anti-bacterial wipes in our kids lunches.
Here are a few tips that might help in the spreading of sickies:
- Pack a single use anti-bacterial wipe in your childs lunchbox. A lot of new wipes these days come individually wrapped and have anti-bacterial properties.
- Teach your kids the importance of washing their hands. The scrubbing, the rinsing, after bathroom breaks and before meals.
- No sharing. This might be a hard one but it’s important to talk to your kids about sharing food and drinks. One of their friends might have something in their lunch box that your child just has to try… but no matter what, teach them it’s more important to stay healthy. I think the main thing is no sharing drinks.
- Keep fingers out of mouth.

Classrooms are often breeding grounds for bacteria. In fact, studies have shown that germs can live on surfaces like desktops and doorknobs for up to two days or more. Disinfecting commonly touched classroom surfaces with a product such as Lysol Disinfecting Wipes can help stop the spread of germs.

I wrote this post while participating in a blog tour conducted by Burst Media on behalf of Lysol. I have been compensated for my time commitment to the program, but my opinions are my own.
