Healthy & Hygienic Feeding

A practical guide to hygienic feeding, to keep your little one healthy

As every parent knows, good nutrition is absolutely critical to the physical and cognitive development of children.  Healthy feeding for babies and toddlers is more than the food that you caringly provide and a few basic hygiene tips can help ensure your child gets the most from the healthy nutrition you provide.


Your baby’s immune system is only just developing and they are very susceptible to bugs that older children have built a natural resistance to.


To keep feeding times healthy, we have a few tips to help you, and although we can’t promise to make feeding times any easier with your little one, we can make them healthier!


Three tips to improve food hygiene are:


    • Ensure that you wash your hands before preparing any food so you don’t inadvertently contaminate any foods with any bacteria that you may have on your hands
    • Ensure the surfaces that you are preparing food on are hygienically clean. Dettol multi action spray is perfect for food contact surfaces and wipe the surface with a clean cloth and rise.
    • Use a clean cloth or sponge; cloths can hide harmful bacteria so, either soak in disinfectant or wash at over 60°C daily to kill bacteria.
    • Dettol Multi Action Spray kills 99.9% of germs and the no taint, no odour formula, is ideal to use to keep your child’s high chair hygienically clean

The high chair is a key hygiene hotspot when children are young. As any parent of a young child would know, during feeding food often goes everywhere, and so keeping the high chair hygienically clean is important in ensuring a healthy feed of your little one. Be sure to thoroughly clean it after every use removing any traces of food. Dettol Multi Action Spray kills 99.9% of bacteria and viruses and the no taint no odour formula is ideal to use to keep your child’s high chair hygienically clean.
