I think it is because people used to believe that their hearts stopped when they sneezed so people would say God Bless You I guess to make their heart start beating again. That is what I have heard, Not sure if it is true though.

When a child sneezes , It is likely to expand the air path of the child. So the elders bless the child a long life.

Glory, when you sneeze, dont ever open your eyes (it is automatically will be close on sneezing), or your eyeballs will pop up out of your head!
