Washing of hands and brushing of teeth are some of the ways to achieve good grooming. Good grooming means practicing good hygiene. This will result to a healthy body and will also boost a person’s self-confidence.
As we celebrate Nutrition Month this July, MDSF also advocates Health Care Awareness in the community. Hence, at an early age, we train the children to always wash their hands and brush their teeth when necessitate. Children are trained to wash their hands before and after eating, after using the washroom, and everytime their hands are dirty. They are also encouraged to brush their teeth three times a day, observing the steps in doing this.
Health is wealth and this should be explained to children so that they are always reminded about this. They should know the importance of taking good care of their own body. Also, they should know how valuable hand washing is to help fight the spread of disease. Meanwhile, brushing of teeth prevents tooth decay and cavities. Helping them know the benefits of these hygienic practices will encourage them to do these every day.
