This post and party were sponsored by ACT Kids Toothpaste but all thoughts and opinions are my own.

Being a parent has many challenges. Making sure that your kids stay healthy is one of the biggest ones. At mealtime, I struggle to get my kids to try new things, especially if they have the dreaded vegetable in, around or near them. For many parents, getting their child to brush their teeth is a daily (er, TWICE daily) battle. My family included.

I know that I’m not alone. According to a recent survey*, more than half of moms surveyed said they struggle with getting their kids to brush their teeth every day, and even more (69%) say they wish getting their kids to brush their teeth was easier. In fact, 52% of moms say they would give up their “me time” for a month if it meant they never had to battle with their kids again to get them to brush their teeth.

In April, we hosted an ACT Kids Brush & Brunch party at the Indy with Kids offices so we could sit down with kids and chat about healthy teeth and ACT Kids Toothpaste.

Our brunch was a delicious pancake buffet with healthy toppings including fruit and dairy products. The cereal bar was a hit with 8 different types of cereal. Some of the kiddos added fruit toppings to their cereal too! We played games and met new friends as we searched the breakfast area for hidden clues about things that were healthy for our teeth and things that were not so healthy.

Each child took home a kiddie swag bag with some cute teeth themed party favors, floss, a timer to make sure they are brushing their teeth long enough and their very own tube of ACT Kids Toothpaste for ages 2 and up. Tooth brushing charts were handed out to use at home.

After brunch, each party guest was given a brand new toothbrush so they could head to our brushing station to try out the ACT Kids Toothpaste. We tried the bubble gum flavor but it’s also available in fruit punch flavor. Each kiddo checked off their first space on the tooth brushing chart and admired their fresh smile as they posed for a “Tooth Selfie”.

New ACT Kids Toothpaste is now available at a variety of retail locations, including select Walmart, Walgreens and Target locations. You can also grab a great money saving coupon at ACTKidsSavings.com

 

*This survey was sponsored by Sanofi Consumer Healthcare and conducted online using Toluna’s QuickSurveys methodology between 2/13/2017 and 2/14/2017 among 1,150 moms with children between the ages of 2 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.
