In brief: Not really

Some compare the intensity of some illnesses in advanced (cleaner) societies with those of the third world.
Kids who grow up without shoes and are constantly facing germs do develop strong natural immunity.(IF THEY SURVIVE) I consider the issue interesting but unworthy of your concern.Practice good hygiene and your kids get sick less often.Let it slide and they are at risk of life changing illness
