It’s a whole new year and there’s undoubtedly a whole new set of germs about to float around and get all of our kids sick this school year.  It’s close living in one classroom all year long and germs spread like crazy.

Wet Ones® Antibacterial Hand Wipes is sponsoring a fun giveaway this month – they are setting out to provide 99 classrooms around the countrywith antibacterial wipes for the new school year.

Five of those classrooms will be classrooms of Mommies with Style readers’ children!  Each classroom selected will receive 100 Wet Ones Antibacterial Wipes travel packs for the new school year.

Wet Ones Antibacterial Wipes are an effective way to keep hands clean and germ-free when soap and water are not available.  They kill 99.99% of germs, and are just as effective in killing germs as an alcohol-based gel hand sanitizer, but also clean away dirt and messes and won’t dry out skin like alcohol-based sanitizers.

To enter, submit their tips for keeping kids happy and healthy in the new school year by commenting below.  This contest will run through end of day Sunday, September 5th.  Five winners will be selected at random from those who have commented below.  Winners will have 48 hours to respond to the email to claim their prize.  (No response forfeits the win and another person will be selected.)

Disclosure:  I have no received payment of any kind for this post.  However, each of my sons’ classrooms will receive their own set of 100 Travel Packs for my having posted this giveaway.

    feed them a good breakfast, get them to bed early!

  2. This is wonderful!

    My little one is 15 months and starting his second year of school. To get him ready we keep a consistent bedtime and getting up routine. He gets several different foods for breakfast. And when he gets to school we wash our hands and then play together until I have to go.

  3. We are thorough about washing our hands and take a bath every night. Making sure my 4 and 2 year old eat their veggies and fruits can be hard so we sneak them into their drinks. In turn maintaining a balanced immune system. It doesn’t hurt to us Lysol wipes on toys and doorknobs as well!

  4. We keep ours boys 7,5 and 2 healthy by earing lots of fresh fruits and veggies. I also buy superfood supplement, organic vitamins and also fish oil for their daily diets. Our rule is as soon as we get home, we go to the bathroom and wash our hands before we do anything!

  5. Eat a healthy breakfast every morning and get plenty of sleep. Don’t forget to wash your hands and sneeze and cough into the crook of your elbow.

  6. Leslie Rouse says

    I work in a school clinic and one of the teacher taught me to wash my hands before I use the restroom to wash the germs off and of course wash them again after you use the restroom. I didn’t get sick last year at all either.

  7. I taught my daughter to always wash her hands before it’s lunch time at school. I also make sure I pack plenty of fruits for lunch for her.


    Pack a fun lunch for the kids cute cheese in shapes like circles diamonds. Cut sandwich in a heart shape. Also in the lunch box put wet ones for them to get thier hands and face clean. Explain to your kids not to share hair brushes or coats at school cause thier may be those pesky little bugs.

  12. Oh, I would love to win this. We are in our fourth week of school and we’ve already had two sick days! Thanks!

  13. My kids wash their hands constantly. Also, they keep hand sanitizer on their backpacks and at their desks.

  14. Keep Your Children Active: Movement mobilizes the immune system. Children who sit too much, especially indoors, get sick more often. Movement also mellows the mood, as stress depresses the immune system.

  15. I love these I always get these

  16. Last year during flu season we started hand washing drills at my house. There was an award (small treat) at the end of the day for the child who remembered to wash their hands the most. I also carry anti bacterial wipes in my purse.

  17. I feed my daughter most home cooked meals and teach her to wash her hands before eating.

  18. Monique Rizzo says

    Establish a routine. Bedtime at the same time each day!
    Thanks for the chance.

  19. My daughter takes a multi-vitamin in the morning with her breakfast and she also has a small bottle of hand sanitizer to keep in her backpack for those times when she can’t wash her hands…these would be so much more convenient and no worries about a leak!

  20. Kerrie Mayans says

    I encourage healthy eating and frequent hand washing during the cold anf flu season.

  38. Michelle H. says

    I promote hand washing at home and I found that taking the flu shots last year really helped our family from getting the more serious cases of the flu.

  39. Teach them really good hygiene habits. Also, provide them with a little pocket hand sanitizer, but only if they are old enough to use it properly.

  40. Lots of activity balanced with an adequate amount of sleep.

  41. Teach them to always wash their hands and not to touch their eyes with dirty hands

  42. Getting my daughter to bed early is the key

  43. Try mantaining a spray bottle full of white vinegar. This is great for disinfecting counters and the dishwasher. Also great for disinfecting any area, besides it doesn’t smell as strong as regular chemicals.
    If it is a dirty area, you can spray vinegar over backing soda and scrub.It will be clean and disinfected.
    You can also mop the floor with vinegar and water.It’s cheap and not harmful as chemicals can be.
