Why is it that sometimes oral care can seem like such a chore for kids? What's so hard about brushing for 2 minutes in the morning and 2 minutes before bed? I feel like I am constantly on Allison, asking "Did you brush your teeth?" Usually, the answer is a huffy no, followed by feet dragging to the bathroom to rush through the process. I'm usually a pretty laid back mom, but when it comes to oral care, I don't negotiate. I will nag to no end until it's done. I've been trying to brainstorm on what I could do to encourage her to want to brush her teeth without me having to huff and puff about it, and I found the solution with hello.
hello offers naturally friendly products in a wide variety of kid approved flavors. Allison was intrigued to see toothpastes that strayed away from the bland tasting pastes we've tried in the past. Bubble Gum, Natural Watermelon, Blue Raspberry, and Mojito Mint flavors grabbed her attention pretty quick, she couldn't wait to try them all! And, I admit, I couldn't wait to try them for myself as well!
The fruity flavored pastes are truly bursting with flavor and taste incredible! We haven't had to remind Allison to brush once since we put these in the bathroom.
Besides the delicious taste, what makes hello different from other pastes on the market? hello is naturally friendly, made with ingredients parents feel good about. The formulations are free of dyes, artificial sweeteners, parabens, triclosan, or microbeads. The fluoride pastes are ADA accepted and clinically proven to strengthen teeth and prevent cavities. For those with small children who may swallow the paste or if you don't dig fluoride, there are also several fluoride-free and SLS-free options: Natural Watermelon and Sweet Mint.
Something else that I LOVE about hello is their commitment to producing naturally friendly products. From bpa-free and phatalate-free tubes that don't crinkle, to recycled boxes that are printed with soy ink, and the toothbrushes feature handles made from 50% recycle material, they certainly are eco-friendly!
Additionally, hello products are Leaping Bunny certified and have earned PETA's Beauty without Bunnies cruelty-free and are vegan certified.
You can find hello products at many major retailers, like Walmart, Target, Rite Aid, Wegmans, Walgreens and Amazon. If you would like to learn more, visit hello-products.com.
