Hello Sweet, Goodbye Sugar! {Giveaway}

Today seems like the perfect day to talk about tooth paste and teeth brushing, right? :)



We are SO excited to do a little Trick-or-Treating with our kids tonight. The anticipation is high, and we can't imagine what job our teachers have with all the kids today. Rumor has it a little candy taste testing has been happening, and the sugar running through their veins as they "pre-game" has started to hit their system.

But we know even though all that sugar is fun and oh so yummy - it has to go. At least off everyone's teeth. We'll totally still be in the pantry doing a little Reece's Peanut Butter Cup reconnaissance and taste testing of our own.

HELLO SWEET, GOODBYE SUGAR!


Hello toothpaste has been a long time favorite of both of our family's. Once we were introduced a few years ago to the kids line, they haven't wanted to brush their teeth with anything else. We love that they have a "naturally-friendly" line of products that is gluten free, vegan, cruelty-free, and free of synthetic dyes, artificial sweeteners/flavors, parabens, microbeads, and triclosan. It's healthy for you beyond just your gums and teeth! 


Since their initial launch, Hello "Naturally Friendly" oral care has expanded greatly. They've added a few new items to their adult line, including a yummy whitening toothpaste. And for the kids they've added new fun flavor for the kids - Watermelon!


Blondie was our official taste tester of the new Watermelon Fluoride-Free flavor and loves it!


She's not about to give up her original favorites though, and has them on rotation at each brushing.


What we were most excited about though, was the addition of a new training toothpaste. Getting children to brush their teeth regularly is one thing, but establishing good brushing habits from the get go is key! A large part of getting little ones, who can't verbally communicate with you, to establish good teeth brushing routines is to make it FUN. From crazy brushing time songs and dances to their favorite characters on their toothbrushes to letting them play in the water while you brush for them - whatever you can to make it something they want to come back to. 


For our tiny tots a large part of that "fun" also includes taste. Because let's be honest, if it doesn't taste good to them, there's no way they are sticking anything in their mouths. Hello's fun flavors make that so much easier, and our tiniest little Magnolia absolutely loves the new apple training toothpaste

She gets so excited to brush her teeth and we've caught her a few times sneaking into the bathroom to brush on her own. Let's just say I'm glad that it's safe to swallow. 


And now that she also has been introduced to the wonderful world of Halloween candy by her siblings and fellow mini-Magnolias, we are glad she has a love for teeth brushing and apple flavored toothpaste that runs deep. 


A HALLOWEEN TREAT FOR YOU!

And since it's Halloween we wanted to give you a little treat of our own. We've teamed up with the fabulous Hello Oral Care team to give away our favorites from the Hello line.
