Brushing one’s teeth is essential in personal hygiene. Having clean, strong teeth can work wonders not only on your physical appearance but also on your confidence. Because when you have a good set of pearly whites, you feel good about yourself and won’t be too shy to face other people.
That’s why it’s important to teach our kids the benefits of brushing one’s teeth. As a mom who’s had dealt with some tooth issues (cavities, braces), I want to impart to my kids that even at a young age, they should take care of their teeth.
And how to make them interested in observing good oral hygiene? By making it more fun for them. Some of the things we can do as parents are:
1. Get them a cute-looking toothbrush.
Which should also be effective in cleaning their teeth. Just like this Colgate Minions Oral Care Pack. When Nuffnang PH sent this over, my kids immediately got attracted to the toothbrush. Bunso got dibs, though, so I got Ate her own from the store.

2. Brushing together.
My eldest likes brushing her teeth and when she does, the youngest follows suit. Well, actually, bunso is in that mimic stage so whatever her Ate does, she does as well. And since Ate knows how to brush on her own, she guides the little one on the up-down-side-to-side ways of brushing.
Making brushing one’s teeth more fun not only makes your kids look forward to toothbrush times but also gives them the best benefits in oral hygiene (without the hassles, too!). If you think your kids will like brushing with the Colgate Minion Toothbrush, you can get buy them at stores or via Lazada:
