Why do kids love our toothpaste?
Use kid-friendly packaging and fruity (not-yucky) flavorings to make the brushing ritual a fun activity for both you and them. As with all of our adult toothpastes, this product does not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), artificial flavors, sweeteners or colors. Dentists generally recommend the use of a fluoride toothpaste, to help strengthen teeth and prevent cavities starting at about 2 years old. We recommend that you use it on a child-size toothbrush in small amounts and work with your child to teach them not to swallow excessive amounts.
Not Yucky Grape flavor.

This is the toothpaste our family is currently testing and yes, it contains fluoride! To learn how and why we have made this radical step, please see my blog post on Why Our Family Is Trying Fluoride Toothpaste and be sure and download the detailed report offered there.
Basically, when I took a second look at the fluoride issue and research, I realized there was a big difference between systemic fluoride (fluoride in drinking water and supplements) and topical fluoride (toothpaste). Since my children were still getting occasional decay, I felt this was something we had to investigate and test. In about a year or two, I will post the results of our experiment.
But in case you want to experiment too (after reading the report) - especially if you have kids - I have got in the same toothpaste that we are using. I especially like this brand (I use it too - I usually sprinkle my toothbrush first with the Eco-Dent Mint Toothpowder and then add some of this on top) since it does not contain SLS (can cause mouth ulcers) and it is all-natural.
