I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for LISTERINE. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.
The boys are both in school and it means we are back to our regular school day routine which means scheduled days, regimented time together and making sure we keep up with all of our healthy habits! One of the best ways we try to instill healthy habits in our kids is through healthy dental hygiene through Heroic Habits with Listerine! We have some great tips to get you ready to go and we love the new line of Listerine products that help all members of our family put their best smiles forward!
1. Prep with the right supplies – cute toothbrushes help!
Included below is our LISTERINE Floss and the LISTERINE Healthy White Gentle Rinse which are great ways to continue to encourage and make heroic habits with LISTERINE! Making sure to floss daily and rinse helps to ensure that you are doing everything you can to make your teeth as healthy as possible. The boys love to choose their own toothbrushes – this helps because it means they are always excited about brushing their teeth and seeing their favorite characters!
2. Don’t forget toothpaste!
Choose toothpaste in flavors that your kids love. They each have their own tube of their favorite flavor and character. While I’m finishing getting ready, the boys finish getting dressed and then come to the bathroom for their morning toothbrush session! At night, it’s all about pajamas, books, teeth, bed and it’s part of our daily routine. Healthy habits are best formed through repetition and reminder!
3. Let them brush, then you help!
Our best method for teaching the boys how to brush is to lead by example, let them try and then finish up to make sure they have reached all the nooks and crannies that they need to. We also help floss since they are still a bit young to know how to do that on their own and see what they need to see. Charlie loves helping us along the way! (And occasionally, we have fights over helping, but they almost always let us do the final brush!)
4. Prepping for those picture days!
Good dental health prepares you for those awesome picture days so that they can put their pearly whites on display. Kids will love flashing those silly grins if they feel confident and LISTERINE helps to make that happen for families!
Those are some of our favorite ways to keep those mouths nice and clean! Not only do we use LISTERINE to help our kids form healthy habits, but my husband and I use the PocketPaks, Floss and Rinses for our own dental hygiene. In addition to the HEALTHY WHITE GENTLE Rinse, we are using the HEALTHY WHITE floss and the POCKETPAKS. The POCKETPAKS freshen breath on the go while killing 99.9% of bad-breath causing bacteria and are sold in a 3 pack, 24 count.
In what ways do you institute good Healthy Habits with LISTERINE? Do you have a set regimen that your kids expect daily when it comes to getting their teeth clean?
