CHI St. Joseph Children’s Health is committed to helping kids learn the healthy habits that lead to healthy smiles. In 2016, we launched the first ever Healthy Habits, Healthy Smiles! Brush-Twice-A-Day Challenge, a county-wide effort to end children’s tooth decay. The challenge inspires 10 weeks of tooth-brushing that is sure to be habit-forming for elementary school children throughout the Lancaster Community.
Thanks to community partners at several preschools, elementary schools and the Library System of Lancaster County, the 2018 Brush Twice-A-Day Challenge reached 12,000 children!
Super Health Heroes Unite!
Look for the Brush Twice-A-Day Challenge at your school this winter and cheer on your student or child as they persevere through ten habit forming weeks of brushing!
Here’s How It Works:
- Your Child will bring home a Health Hero Starter Pack complete with a toothbrush, toothpaste, ten scratch off cards, and caregiver information.
- Your Child can scratch off a tooth on the card each time they brush their teeth.
- Don’t forget to unscramble the word under the teeth and add it to the Super Bonus Card! Flip each card over for reinforcing activities and weekly challenges with Hank the Health Hero.
- Each week, your child can bring a completed card back to school and place it in the Hank the Health Hero mailbox.
- Every participating child will receive prize at school!
Hank’s Super Challenge!
Each scratch off card includes a weekly Super Challenge with Hank the Health Hero.
