Ounce of Prevention Kids

The “Ounce of Prevention Kids” website is an interactive website for parents and teachers to help teach healthy hygiene habits that will prevent the spread of illness-causing germs. It is designed for children aged six to nine years old and features a range of activities for kids to play on their own or with a parent or teacher, to educate them about personal hygiene, nutrition, exercise and safety. Children can follow guides R.B. and Scrubs, (animated characters), around the site to learn about the importance of hand washing, computer safety, healthy food choices and more. Activities can be played online or printed for later use.
