A Family, Beauty, Health and Lifestyle Blog
Believe it or not, February is right around the corner! Each year, the American Dental Association recognizes February as National Children’s Dental Health Month to raise awareness about the importance of oral health. The theme for 2015 is “Defeat Monster Mouth,” which aims to demonstrate effective ways for kids to defeat plaque and maintain good oral health by brushing, flossing, rinsing and eating healthy snacks.
This year, Xlear is working to educate children and parents on the importance of incorporating healthier snacks and better oral care habits into their daily routine.
There are great snack options out there for families looking to practice better oral care, such as SparX Candy from the Xlear brand. These sweet but sugar-free candies are made with xylitol, which keeps bacteria from sticking to teeth and forming plaque! In fact, studies have proven that when combined with regular dental hygiene, regular use of xylitol gums, mints and candy can reduce dental cavities by as much as 80%!
My kids and I love SparX Candy! Every time we go to the dentist I buy each of the kids a pack of this yummy candy for a treat. My favorite are the berry flavored. They are addicting. It is very hard to believe that they are good for you because they are so sweet.
For your little ones that struggle with brushing, the delicious and all-natural Kid’s Spry Tooth Gel offers less mess than brushing with toothpaste, along with the great, proven dental benefits of xylitol!
I wish the adorable Baby Banana Brush and Kids Spry Tooth Gel was around when my children were little. I always had to sit on Braxton and force-brush his teeth. I could only get the toothbrush in his mouth when he was screaming.
My little nephew, Wesley is sixteen months old and is the perfect age for these products, so I gave him the Baby Banana Brush & Kids Spry Tooth Gel Set (shown above) as a gift. He is cutting his first teeth, and Spry is helping him to learn to love brushing his teeth with a tooth gel that tastes great and a toothbrush that is perfect for chubby little hands and tiny little mouths. (See cute little Wesley below.)
SparX Candy, $1.49

My kids love chewing gum, but I always worry that their teeth will be damaged, so I always try to make sure I buy sugarless gum. I do also worry about the artificial sweetners in the sugarless gum.....I mean what are the artificial sweetners made of? Can it hurt my children's health?
When I recieved my samples of Glee gum in the mail, my children and I went on a gum chewing spree. We all loved Glee gum!
I was also sent The Glee All Natural Chewing gum kit. My daughters certainly had fun making their own gum!
From their website:
Glee Gum is all natural chewing gum made with sustainably harvested rainforest chicle. It comes in SIX great flavors: cinnamon, peppermint, tangerine, bubblegum, spearmint, and triple berry. Glee Gum is the #1 healthy alternative to synthetic chewing gum and bubble gum! With no artificial colors, flavors, sweeteners (no aspartame), or preservatives, it's easy to chew Glee-fully!
Our activity kits for children are fun and educational. They are great for science classes, birthday parties, scout troops, and home schools. Kids can make chocolate, chewing gum, or gummy candy and learn a lot in the process!
One lucky winner will recieve their choice of an All Natural Candy Kit (ARV 13.00)
