Listerine Oral Care Challenge

Wow! I can't believe how many kids oral care products there are on the market today. One of our favorites, Listerine Agent Cool Blue, is a flouride-free brushing "helper" that we've been using in our house for years. (It leaves some blue stuff in your sink every time kids use it, but it's nothing that can't be cleaned up with a wet wipe.)

Since our participation in the Listerine Oral Care Challenge this month, however, we have learned about even more ways to keep kids excited and diligent about taking good care of their teeth. Even when I get a bit lazy about doing the whole routine: brush, floss, rinse -- my kids are super persistent that "Mom, I need to do all these things for my teeth. We only have to do them for the ones we want to keep!"

My kids are right, of course, and so I've been introducing myself to some handy tools to helping us out during our 2-week challenge to take extra good care of our teeth (and right before Halloween, too!) I really like the Reach flossers and the Listerine Total Care (which makes me feel like less of a yuck-mouth in the morning.)

Our family went through the 2-week Oral Care challenge with flying colors. To be honest, we didn't even need the cute calendar and rewards stickers that came in our challenge kit. (Wasn't spitting bright blue stuff into the sink reward enough?)

I think my family is on the right track to a lifetime of good oral health!
