fight swine flu: wash your hands!

It's a scary fact. Swine flu has hit the U.S. and could soon turn up in a town/city near you. How to keep your kids safe: The CDC advises keeping them home if they're sick, making sure they cover their noses and mouths if they cough or sneeze and last--but definitely not least--washing their hands often. We know, easier said than done, right? What kid wants to spend his/her time washing up when he/she could be doing just about anything else. Thankfully, there's a slew of soaps and hand sanitizers out there to get them interested in coming clean. One that may be considered more fun than a chore: Kids Only! Foaming Hand Soap from Jason Natural Products ($8.99). Not only is it free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates, glycol, wheat, gluten, mineral oil and petrolatum, it features natural fragrances that make them fun to use. We tried Berry Burst (it also comes in Tropical Twist). My 18-month old daughter loves the pump since she can squeeze some out herself; my about-to-turn-three-year-old son loves the foam which he says is like playing with shaving cream. They both love the fruity berry scent. Available in fine natural product stores and on www.jason-natural.com.
