Brush 2mins 2x/day
Help your kids brush their teeth 2min2x — 2 minutes each time, twice a day — for healthier teeth, good breath, fewer cavities, and to avoid painful dental problems. The Partnership for Healthy Mouths, Healthy Lives recommends that you help or watch over your kids’ brushing until they’re 8. Once your child’s teeth start to come into the mouth, brush using a children’s toothbrush and fluoride toothpaste in an amount no more than the size of a grain of rice.
Pack healthy snacks in their lunch such as:
Grapes, apples, celery, carrots, cucumbers and bananas. Make sure to include water instead of juice or pop. A combination of healthy foods and good oral hygiene are the key to success in keeping a healthy mouth and teeth.
