Do you have your children wash their hands before eating?


I was taught washing one's hands before eating is good sanitary practice, and likewise I still tell my kids to do this. But I've been told by a few that the practice is "old-fashioned" and worse, "anal". What do you think - does instructing your kids to wash their hands before coming to the table have hygienic merit or is it an outdated and unnecessary practice?
