Silly Strawberry Smiles {Target $100 Gift Card Giveaway}

tom's of maine silly strawberry natural toothpaste

Have you taken a look at your child’s toothpaste ingredients lately? I know I haven’t…just getting the task of tooth brushing x4 once or twice a day is enough to keep me occupied.  However, Tom’s of Maine recently challenged our family to do the “Silly Strawberry Swap” and replace our current toothpaste with their natural children’s toothpaste.

The switch was no biggie.  No complaints, no refusals, no “can I skip?” requests. Just a lot of silliness…but that pretty much comes with the territory around here, (especially at bedtime).

I like that Tom’s of Maine uses natural ingredients -no artificial dyes or sweeteners (no saccharin, no red dyes, sucralose unlike other kid-brand toothpastes). I also feel good about giving it to our kids because it’s the only natural kid’s toothpaste to receive the ADA’s approval for effectiveness.

The “strawberry” on top?

    I generally base my purchase on price. I search for organic / natural coupons but if I can’t find any, then this family of 8 kiddoes uses the best quality we can afford.

    As long as it’s on the cheaper side and by a brand I know, I’ll get it for them– I’ve only recently learned about the phosphates, etc in toothpastes and would like to do more natural if were more available and cheaper!

    We’ve recently switched to Tom’s and LOVE it! I had a hard time convincing my oldest to make the transition, but our whole family is using it now. What a great giveaway!

    When our kids were younger, I was more diligent about looking for natural ingredients so that if they accidentally swallowed some, it was safe. Now, I still would prefer all natural ingredients, but don’t always buy those.
