Hank the Health Hero invites you to join him in the 10 week CHI St. Joseph Children’s Health Brush Twice-a-Day Challenge! It’s easy. Pick up your Challenge pack at the Library, brush twice a day, track each time you brush on that week’s Challenge post card, and then drop your completed weekly post card into the special Brush Twice-a-Day Challenge mailbox in the Library. Prizes will be mailed to your home in December.

Tooth decay is the most common childhood illness according to the CDC, but is easily prevented with daily brushing. Brushing removes the germs that cause bad breath and decay. Research on habit formation suggests it takes most people about 10 weeks to form new habits.  This initiative is 10 weeks long so kids have the best chance to form a healthy habit that sticks.
