Do you send a toothbrush with your kid to school? I think it's important to teach our children proper oral care and let's face it mom's no matter how healthy you pack a lunch, vending machines, other kids lunches, and sometimes the food offered at the cafeteria can be full of sugar or fat and all could be traded for the lunch you packed. It would seem that the lunch exchange is just a part of growing up and learning to barter in order to obtain something you want. What you can do is help protect your kid's teeth from what they might put in it! This is gaining in popularity and now even some preschools or full time Kindergarten will allow toothbrushes and tooth paste to be used after meals. So, what do you send for this?
First, I think, its important to decide what is healthy for your child. It is important to remember with the younger children (under 6) that Fluoride needs to be avoided. In fact, according to the Fluoride Action Network, there are thousands of reports to Poison Control centers in America each year related to excessive ingestion of fluoride by children. What parent needs that right? So, I decided to test our Dr. Sharp's Kid's Fluoride Free Toothpaste.
Dr. Sharp's Kid's Fluoride Free Toothpaste: This toothpaste is great in my opinion. It not only doesn't have Fluoride, no trips to DR for this mom, but it is also free of alcohol (common in toothpaste), sodium Layrul Sulfate, and paraben. Instead it uses vegan ingredients that provide just as good of a cleaning to your kids teeth. At only $13.00 this is a great supply of Fluoride Free vegan toothpaste that you can feel safe sending to school to help keep your kid's dental health well. Why am I so obsessed with teeth? Have you seen the cost of caps? That's all I'm saying, I'd rather be pro-active and avoid cavities then have to cap them later!
