Can you outsmart the germs that threaten your family’s health? Read on to find out.

It’s no fun for anyone when the little ones get sick. First, there’s the anxiety and stress this causes. Then, you have to deal with the poor little one’s coughing or burning up with fever in the middle of the night. And what about the time you have to take off from work, or the many days of school your child will miss?

Needless to say, we dislike illness in our children as well as the nasty germs that cause it.

When it comes to germ protection for kids, how do you keep them safe at all times? Apart from inculcating good hygiene habits, being aware of hiding places of microbes goes a long way. 

What objects do you think are the dirtiest things you and your kids come into contact with on a daily basis?

Public toilets would surely top the list. Perhaps diaper changing tables in the mall come in at a close second. But there could be other surprisingly common items that can also be a breeding ground for germs.

Take this quiz to find out just how aware you are of unlikely places germs can hide. 

After all, just being aware can make everyone more conscientious in practicing good hygiene to combat these bugs and stay clear of illnesses!

Now that you’re aware, do share this with your loved ones with a reminder to practice good hygiene!

Hand washing with soap and water protects kids from illness and stop the spread of infections. In fact, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention) has found that proper hand washing protects one in three children from diarrhoeal diseases and one in five children from respiratory infections such as pneumonia.
