As someone who has worked retail through-out Covid-19; it has been just as hard for us as anyone. My child’s school would not take her for the first 3 months despite me being a key worker and having a letter from my employer explaining such and my ex husband lives with his parents, both over 70 etc. Sometimes you do have to put your foot down and explain that as the primary care-giver you have to work, there is no two ways about it. Kids need feeding (more than us I have noticed!) And then they grow too so need new clothes and its just hell trying to keep on top of it all (speaking as someone who has always worried about clothes, if they are too tight etc)

Just assure them like I did, wear the PPE, wash everything as much as you can and hope for the best is all any of us can do at the moment. Hope this helps.
