If you recall, back in November , I posted about the Listerine Oral Care Challenge that my family and I are participating in with Listerine and Mom Central! As I stated previously, this was/is a perfect time of year to participate as it always means a lot of sweets! From leftover Halloween candy to holiday pies and cakes — eating all those sweets seems harmless enough! However, we now know that pediatric oral disease is the #1 chronic childhood illness.
Through our participation, we had to brush, floss, and use mouth-wash twice a day every day for three weeks. We already did this, but getting kids to take part is trickier.
To assist in getting kids to participate, they had sent some kid-friendly toothbrushes. The likes of Batman and Phineas and Ferb! And some great kid’s mouthwashes. The toothbrushes were so cute they jumped on trying them and they helped them to get to those hard-to-reach back teeth. We allowed them to use the Reach Flosser, figuring that it made it much easier for to use because it has the handle on it.
The hubby and I used our brand new toothbrushes, Reach floss, and the Listerine Total Care Zero, which tastes really great. I particularly liked their floss. I have tried many that shredded with use and this didn’t!
The kids were most excited about the Smart Rinse! This is because the Smart Rinse is that is tints any particles left behind from brushing, and when you expel them, you see the darker dots of grossness in the sink. While this is particularly disgusting to me, my children found it fascinating.
We like seeing the rinse actually does something. Hubby and I had to try the Smart Rinse too! We just had to see it an action…lol.
If you are concerned with your family having great oral care as we were, stop by the Listerine website where you will find loads of info on oral care for the whole family, even downloads to help teach kids at any age about smart oral care.
There is also a $1 coupon to get you started!
