Brush Twice-A-Day Challenge

 

 

 

 

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 2017 Brush Twice-A-Day Challenge reached 8,000 children!

Celebrate National Children’s Dental Health Month this February with the Brush Twice-A-Day Challenge in your home and school.

Ready, Set, Brush!

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:

Students will receive a take-home Health Hero Starter Pack complete with a toothbrush, toothpaste, ten scratch off cards, and caregiver information. Each time the student brushes in the morning and at night, they can scratch the plaque off a tooth on the card.

Students can return completed cards to the Hank the Health Hero mailbox located in a convenient area in their school.

Every participant will earn a prize at the end of the challenge!

Hank Says…healthy choices!

The front and back of each scratch off card includes a game of Hank Says!  Families can practice the Hank Says healthy habit at home and follow Hank on Facebook to view Hank Says videos, activities, and more! Visit Hank’s Facebook Page!
