How do I get my kids to stop picking?

I have a 4 1/2 and 3 year old and I feel I am always asking them to stop picking their noses. I've even seen my daughter eat her boggers and I am grossed out. I try to carry kleenex's to help them with better manners but I'm not sure how to get them to stop. (Especially the eating) Any suggestions?

sometime the are just doing it cause you are responding to it. Like my daughter heard a swear and kept repeating it the more I told her no the more she said it but when I started ignoring it she stopped. She did the same thing with picking her nose and the more we told her no the more she did it she thought it was a game now we just ignore it and it has gotten way better.
