I agree with this guest. Artificial flavors used to "help" kids enjoy brushing their teeth just seems silly.

I agree with Lori. I to prefer the TOM's kids toothpaste over some of their standard flavors.

We started using Tom’s mouth wash. The taste and affect is much more gentle the a traditional bright green mouth wash J. It is funny, at first I thought that perhaps it is not as affective as the mouth wash which literally feels like it is “burning” away germs. Once adjusting, I can’t imagine using the standard brand.

My kids have no interest in using “regular” toothpaste. The flavors are much too strong, and I worry about the paste they swallow.

I enjoy Tom’s kids toothpaste, and actually the entire family, young and older just share one tube now.

Is there a 365 children’s toothpaste?

I like the idea of using peppermint as a flavoring agent! My boys seem very drawn to this flavor, but they are not such big fans for strawberry in toothpaste.

@Sally Currently, there is no 365 children's toothpaste, but I've forwarded your suggestion to our private label team. Thanks!

We tried to get our kids to use a homemade baking soda toothpaste, to no avail. The Strawberry T.O.M. –seems to be a gentle flavor they enjoy and they actually look forward to brushing as an activity they can do themselves.

I do agree that a gentle tooth cleaner is good for children to help them avoid ingestion of harmful chemicals.

I started out with Crest with our oldest, to no avail. After diluting the strawberry she took to it, and now brushes on her own.

I’m surprised there aren’t many healthy kids toothpaste options. I’ve only found Tom’s thus far.

Oral health care is vital for all ages. Without oral health a series of deeper problems can arise. I follow brushing with Tom’s mouthwash.

Anything you can get your kids to brush with seems like a good option.

Thanks for the info. I noticed good advice concerning fluoride on your other entry!

The feedback for Silly Strawberry sounds strong. I'll try it with my boys, and hope it reduces our current battles :)

Very cute photo! This brings back memories of early days for our kids. I'm glad to see other parents using natural tooth pastes.

Using kids tooth paste is a great way to get them to brush, even better is all of the fun tooth brushes you can find. Dora of course is a big one in our house.

Tom’s mouthwash is such a great option. The standard mouthwashes are alcohol based and tear up your mouth.

We had to use are fingers to get the brushing done, I'm sad to say. It is easier with age and with a less abrasive tooth paste!
