Every Easter Basket has to have special Easter candy in it. However, it shouldn’t be loaded with so much sugar that it is unhealthy. Raising healthy kids requires a balance. Many parents are adding non-candy items to Easter baskets like sidewalk chalk, books, small games, and toys. Another excellent idea to combat all of the sugar in the candy is fun oral health care items!
I received product to facilitate this post.
I talk about oral health often on this blog because it affects our overall health. It is important to set a good example for our kids and not make health teeth a challenge with too much candy – especially during the holidays!
FireFly makes oral health fun for kids with kids’ favorite characters like Spider Man, Hello Kitty, Star Wars favorites, Finding Dory and many more! Consider adding a fun powered toothbrush in your child’s Easter basket this year. It may not be the first thing they want to try out but it will be exciting when it is time to brush their teeth and enjoyed for much longer than the chocolate bunny!
The above Star Wars toothbrush is sure to be a hit for both boys and girls. You could make it a Star Wars themed basket by adding the new Rogue One DVD to the basket too. I love the light and sound timer too!
Hello Kitty is always a popular character for girls. This light-up Firefly tooth brush will get your girl brushing happily. It’s amazing how much more kids brush when it made fun!
The Secret Life of Pets was a great movie for both girls and boys. This Firefly toothbrush would be so fun. It even has a cute doggie antibacterial cover that makes it perfect for traveling! Add the DVD for a theme basket.
Adding a fluoride rinse to your child’s oral health care routine is vital. Make it fun with a bubble gum flavored fluoride rinse with a pump. Kids will enjoy pumping their own mouth wash out of the bottle. Again, they may not reach for the fluoride rinse first but they will enjoy it once it is time to brush their teeth.
Candy can cause cavities. That being said, don’t make the mistake of having your children brush their teeth immediately after eating candy. It is better to wait 1 hour because acid found in candy can harm the protective enamel on your teeth. Your teeth are more susceptible to harm right after eating because acid weakens teeth – let your teeth recover from the acid before brushing.
