Disclosure: This post and party was sponsored by ACT Kids Toothpaste but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
It’s no secret that life brings challenges. Add some kids in the mix, and you have 99 problems! With 3 kids of my own (8 years to 4 months old) I have many different battles to fight. These battles range from controlling my 4 year old’s sweet tooth to getting my 8 year old to do something that he deems “a waste of his time”; basically, that means anything that isn’t building Legos, Mine Craft or drawing. For many moms, getting their kids to brush their teeth is a daily battle. (In my case, getting my 8 year old to do quality brushing).
According to a recent survey, nearly 4 in 10 moms (35%) say getting their kid(s) to brush their teeth is one of their most frustrating daily battles, in line with convincing their kid(s) to eat their vegetables (38%) and putting their kid(s) to bed at night (40%).*
I am so excited to have been able to host a ACT Kids Toothpaste MommyParty!
And it couldn’t have come at a better time… My 8 year old just had his first CAVITY!! Luckily it was on a baby tooth but what a wake up call! Being 8, he needs some independence in the hygiene department and unfortunately, that means I can’t go around brushing his teeth for him. So what is a mom suppose to do?
Luckily, by hosting the ACT Kids Toothpaste MommyParty, I have picked up some information that I would love to pass on.
- The new ACT Kids Toothpaste is now available for kids ages 2 years and older in both bubble gum and fruit punch flavors.
- ACT Kids Toothpaste is specially developed for kids. It strengthens and protects developing teeth and helps prevent cavities.
- For kids 6 and older, there is also ACT Kids Anticavity Rinse. Using the rinse after brushing, by swishing for 60 seconds a day reduces children’s cavities up to 40% more than brushing alone!
- New ACT Kids Toothpaste is available at a variety of retail locations, including select Walmart, Walgreens, and Target locations.
In order to promote good dental care, I hosted an ACT Kids Toothpaste Party. During the party, we had lots of fun learning about healthy habits to keep our teeth at their best! We played healthy habit matching – matching fruit, water, toothpaste, etc. We ate yummy tacos with many fresh toppings and fruit and had a lively talk about how we need to brush 2x a day and eat a balance diet, with not too many sweets. The party guest were then sent home with information on how to keep the cavities far, far away and a tooth brush, timer, teeth erasers, brushing charts and the new ACT Kids toothpaste! I don’t know, who was the most excited for the goodies… the kids or the adults! I do know that many of the kids couldn’t wait to try out the new flavors.
*This survey was sponsored by Sanofi Consumer Healthcare and conducted online using Toluna’s QuickSurveys methodology between February 13, 2017 and February 14, 2017 among 1,150 moms with children between the ages of two and 12 in the USA. Respondents for Toluna QuickSurveys are selected from among those who have agreed to participate in Toluna surveys.
Toluna’s SmartSelectTM methodology was used to promote sample representativeness. SmartSelect relies on statistical matching rather than probability sampling to select survey respondents, based on demographic, attitudinal and behavioral characteristics that match those of the target population. Figures for age, gender, region, race/ethnicity, education and income are also weighted to bring them into line with their actual proportions within the population. Because the sample is based on those who agreed to participate in Toluna surveys, no estimates of theoretical sampling error can be calculated.
