I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Orbit for Kids. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
My 5-year-old loves to visit the grocery store with me. His favorite part is when we’re standing at the checkout line. He’s in sugar heaven with loads of candy bars and gum displayed in front of him. I don’t give my kids loads of sugar so my typical response is no when he asks, “Mommy can I have this?” And that’s usually repeated with a few, “well can I have this?” I don’t always like to feel like a broken record so on occasion I do let him chew a piece of gum.
Recently we were sent a cool pack from Orbit for Kids, which included a toothbrush, Listerine, floss picks, and Orbit for kids strawberry/banana gum.
I could finally say YES the next time my son asked for gum because Orbit for Kids is sugarfree! It comes in two varieties original bubble gum and strawberry banana. He was so excited to try this special gum, just for him!
When asked what he thought of the strawberry/banana flavor he said, “I really like it.”
I appreciated that Orbit for Kids included oral hygiene items in the pack as well. I believe it’s important to instill healthy habits at an early age so it becomes second nature to kids. Since our little guy was old enough, he has always been interested in brushing his own teeth. He would even ask for a new toothbrush every week! Our newest habit we are building with him is flossing. I’ve included a few flossing tips for kids below.
Daddy was teaching our little guy how to use his own floss pick. I like that they are the perfect size for his hands. He’s really an independent easy-going child, so I couldn’t ask for anything better!
The benefits of chewing sugarfree gum, like Orbit for Kids, include cleaning food debris from the mouth and stimulating saliva flow.
Orbit for Kids will be available nationwide later this month so be on the lookout next time you’re checking out at the register!
