You have to tell you what is the cause of the jaundice
. If it is viral hepatitis
like A and E it is spread by food and water, if someone in your family is affected make sure you take boiled water and properly cooked food. If it is something like hepatitis B- it is spread by bodily fluids. So your kids are not going to get that so dont worry. If something else is the cause of the jaundice other than hepatitis it is non contagious. So dont worry , your kids are not going to get the jaundice from your family member.
