Learning About Keeping Our Teeth Healthy!

Well, I picked my daughter up from school today and was delighted to see she had a big smile on her face, literally. I just had to laugh, she looked adorable and hilarious all at the same time.

I just couldn't pass up the opportunity to share my daughter's healthy smile and a few facts she learned today about keeping her teeth healthy.

Each child was given an activity booklet. The back page was covered with items that could either harm or help your teeth. My daughter was to circle each item she thought would help promote a healthy mouth or cross out the items that could potentially do harm. She did a great job circling things like toothpaste, a toothbrush, the dentist, a carton of milk and so on. Of course like any good 4yr. old she left the picture of a piece of candy without an x or a circle. When I asked her about it she said, "Mom, (little giggle)candy is good for your teeth."
