There are lots of reasons why you might want to ditch the Crest or those sugary, children’s toothpastes that you find at the grocery store and go with a more natural option. For me this is clear whenever I see my three year old daughter brushing her teeth for the…oh I don’t know…eleventh or twelve time in a day. :)
Luckily, there are some great options out there in the natural toothpaste department. The options are not as great though for children’s toothpastes (aka toothpastes they will actually use) but here are a few to ponder:
Tom’s of Maine Fluoride Free Children’s Toothpaste – Natural fruit extracts provide flavor; fluoride free so you don’t have to worry if more ends up in your child’s tummy than in the sink. No artificial ingredients. No animal testing.
Children’s Zinc Plus Herbal Toothpaste – Does Not Contain: Artificial Sweeteners, Dyes, Chemical Preservatives.
Weleda Toothpaste, Children’s Tooth Gel – Gently Cleans Baby Teeth. Safe to Swallow, Pleasant Taste, Fluoride-Free.
