Bacteria exposure is actually really good for kids. You may want to consider cutting back on the frequency of hand washing. I have my kids wash their hands before they eat if we're at the parents' center (or some other place where there are lots and lots of kids playing together), but I never worry about it at home, with animals, when we're outside . . .
Definitely don't worry about it!
