Good hand washing habits are child's play - but getting tiny tots to practise them can be an uphill battle.
South Coast mum, Jade Tonta, and friend Emily Wright are on a mission to get kids to love the scrub - and Sunday, May 5, is the World Health Organisation's World Hand Hygiene Day.
Ms Tonta's daughter, Lulu, has Down Syndrome, and found hand washing upsetting.
"She didn't like getting her hands wet, let alone using soap," Ms Tonta said. "We discovered what an important role good hand hygiene has in keeping kids healthy and reducing the spread of infection. So we decided to create educational resources and kid focused products to teach them."
They founded HappyHandz, which visits childcare centres in the region to promote good hygiene habits.
