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!

Nice conversation. I feel like each time I brush I have incidental bits of paste I ingest and I fear they indeed are not so incidental.

There really isn't much choice here. If we know that a paste like tom's does the job and doesn't have sweeteners and actually has beneficial herbs, why would any one go with a product like crest?

It is good to see so many people interested in this topic. A simple change like oral health care can really help ones overall health.

I agree with Ilona, this is a simple but great topic to address if you have little ones!

I used my finger to get my daughter to take tooth paste at first. She has become a pro, and the fun flavor of strawberry seems to be a big part of the deal. We used crest recently and that did not go over well at all.

It is so valuable to use a natural tooth paste, as well as any natural products when and where you can. It improves your general health quality.

The fluoride in many tooth pastes can't be good for really you kids.

The Silly Strawberry paste has really worked well for us. Indeed it was a battle prior to get are kids to but the Crest in their mouths.

Thanks for the info concerning fluoride, I have never known what was the past path on the subject.

I like some of these comments. "I use my finger to brush my kids teeth" classic, I hope they don't leave for college anytime soon :) It is true that it can be really hard to get some kids to brush, just be patient and use a paste that isn't taste offensive.

Glad to find the link here! Great conversation going on and I agree that we should be aware and consider natural options for everything we put on and in our body.
