Is there a song that your students already know the melody to?  For example, Bobby McFerrinīs - Donīt Worry Be Happy is well known and well liked here.  You could write lyrics based on hygeine and health to that well known melody, and have the students act out (perform the actions of) and dance to what they are singing.
 
For example,
 

Here is a little song I wrote
You might want to sing it note for note
Don īt worry be happy
In every life we have some trouble
When you īre unhealthy you make it double
Don īt worry, be happy......

 
 
When I get up I wash my face
I brush my teeth before I take my place
To eat breakfast
That īs healthy 
 
This is the way we comb our hair
Happy to say there īs no lice there
Cause I īm healthy
Let īs be happy
 
 
This is the way we wash our clothes 
They īre fresh and nice
and smell good to the nose
Be happy. We īre healthy.
 
We have an awesome morning routine
We shower or bathe to keep us clean 
We īre washing, dancing and splashing.
 
The soap kills germs
They wash away
We scrub them off day by day.
We īre healthy. And Happy.
 
 
And if you don īt wash
What do you think?
You will get sick
And start to stink.
Be happy. Be healthy. 
 
 We wash our hands
and clean the table
to kill the germs when we are able.
Be happy. Be healthy.
 
We clean our house
We mop and sweep
for we have a promise to keep
Stay healthy.  to live a great life.
 
Go to the doctor 
for preventive care
If any disease is lurking there
He īll treat it and cure it.
 
And when you īre sick,
Stay home from school
You don īt want to be the fool
who speads germs around
And gets his friends sick.
 
Go to the dentist for preventive care.
 There īs germs in your mouth 
So please beware.
Brush your teeth
to avoid cavities.
 
Don īt eat a lot of sugar
or candy sweets.
They are not good for  your teeth.
And be active
So you don īt put weight on.
 
Exercise your muscles and your mind.
Run around at recess
and plan a study time.
Eat healthy.
If you īre healthy, you īre wealthy.
 
This is just an idea of what you might want to try.  I īm sure you and your students can come up with your own creative lyrics and actions, and maybe you can use a different song (from a popular movie?) as a basis. Here is the melody fo the McFerrin song. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Oo4OnQpwjkc

I recorded the song so you can hear it. http://vocaroo.com/i/s1i7nlstWTQR

By the way, if you want to keep the recording permanently (or for a while) you should download it as a mp3 because vocaroo deleted recordings after a while.
