3. Pack a Healthy Lunch If They Are Attending Class In-Person
Eating healthy, organic foods at home is a great way to protect your child’s teeth but in order to make this a habit, it is important to pack healthy snacks for lunch a well! Instead of packing up popular snacks that contain great amounts of sugar, include tooth-friendly snacks like fruits and dairy products. Fruits will satisfy your child’s sweet cravings and dairy products like string-cheese or a carton of milk will make his or her teeth stronger and healthier.
Remember that treating your kids with some sweets from
time to time is not bad! Just keep in mind to give them in
moderation and teach your kids the importance of brushing
and flossing after eating these treats.4. Allow Them to Choose Their Toothbrush & Toothpaste
Choice is an incredible motivator for children. When children are allowed to choose their dental toothbrushes, they are essentially choosing the specifics of how they want to brush their teeth.
There are different kinds of toothbrushes, toothpaste, and other oral hygiene products your child can choose from! Some brands offer toothbrushes that play music, others that sell mouthwash that turn their teeth blue, and there are products with your child’s favorite superhero or favorite princess.
Take your child to the nearest supermarket and let him/her choose his favorite products! This will boost the likelihood of making the experience of brushing and flossing and enjoyable one for your child.
