Listerine Oral Care Challenge

With Halloween, and the influx of candy to accompany it, coming up Listerine created the "October Oral Care Challenge" for kids 6 and older. The challenge was to brush, floss, and rinse twice a day, every day, for 2 weeks.

The premise behind the challenge is to instill in your kids the importance of good oral care. A tip from Dr Kanetta Lott, a leading pediatric dentist, is to show, don't tell. Lead by example, as kids will imitate your behavior and make oral hygiene feel less like a 'kid thing'. You can get more tips by age.

We're in the middle of our 2-week challenge and so far so good! I don't generally have a problem with getting Kayla (and Lucas) to brush their teeth...it's part of our routines, but I don't always brush my teeth at the same time. Kayla is getting better with letting me floss her teeth, but she doesn't quite have the concept of rinsing down yet.

As part of the challenge we received a calendar and stickers to keep track of our progress and this has been fun for Kayla. Stickers are always good for a reward :)

Here is a coupon for Listerine Smart Rinse for kids.

"I wrote this review while participating in a blog tour campaign by Mom Central on behalf of Listerine and Reach and received Listerine and Reach products for the Oral Care Challenge and a gift certificate to donate at Global Giving to thank me for taking the time to participate."

Get It Down; 31 for 21

What a great idea. I have heard horror stories about getting our kids to brush, good to know you haven't had such issues. Sam only has one tooth so we just brush the one. :-)
