**I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Orbit for Kids. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating
Growing up with a mom in the dental field, I learned all about healthy oral hygiene habits from a young age. Over the years I have continued to make taking care of my teeth a priority, and want to pass that down to my children as well.
With three young children, it's not always easy to get them to understand the importance of brushing their teeth every day. Overtime though, they've become more aware of the importance of keeping "sugar bugs" as we call them, off their teeth so they don't get any cavities or other problems.
To make brushing and flossing more fun for them, I try to brush and floss right along with them. I think it's important to have someone to model the behavior for them, and when they see me having fun doing it, they want to have fun too! We also try to sing fun songs (the same ones I used to sing with my preschoolers as they were brushing their teeth when I was teaching) which helps to make the time more enjoyable for everyone!
I am always looking for ways to encourage healthy oral hygiene habits, and recently learned about another great way to help my kids keep their little mouths clean in between brushings.
New Orbit for Kids sugarfree gum gives me the convenient and fun option of giving my kids gum on the go to enhance their oral care routine in addition to brushing and flossing. With hectic summer schedules, we are on the go a lot, and having Orbit for Kids be so convenient to take with us has been great.
While kids chew the Orbit for Kids gum, they clean their mouths of food debris and stimulate saliva flow, which helps to protect teeth by reducing plaque acids and strengthening teeth. In fact, Orbit for Kids gum has been awarded the ADA Seal of Acceptance.
Orbit has come out with two kid-friendly sugarfree flavors, Original Bubblegum and Strawberry Banana! We were sent Orbit product samples for our kids to try and when the arrived, the kids couldn't wait to start chewing their new gum! Afterall, what kid doesn't like gum?! Talk about an easy way to promote healthy oral care.
My kids LOVE the Strawberry Banana flavor. I carry it with me in my purse, so when we're out and about, my older two can easily chew a piece of gum while giving me peace of mind that it's helping keep their teeth healthy and clean in between brushings and flossings.
