Good hand washing: This can actually be normal. It depends on how much he is exposed to other children. Try to make sure his hands are washed well before he eats. Also when he gets i'll treat his fever and push the liquids, what ever he likes to drink.

Sick: If your child is in a play group or nursery you can expect him to be sick 6-12 times a year. His exposure to other sick children stimulates his body to build antibodies which reach adult levels at about 7 years.
