With Christmas just around the corner, we are all eagerly making our purchases for loved ones, and stockings are often an exciting addition to the morning Christmas traditions. But finding things that are useful and/or even healthy can sometimes take additional effort …so allow us to help offer you some advice and ideas on what you can purchase as “healthy stocking stuffers”, without reducing any excitement whatsoever!

Making a List, Checking it Twice

The smiling face of a child is a delight to see any time of the year, but over the Christmas holidays it adds a certain magic to see the glowing faces of boys and girls as they eagerly unwrap their treasures. These stocking stuffer ideas are no exception, so grab a pen and start your list!

Tasty Toothpaste

What kid doesn’t like a fun flavour of toothpaste to make their oral care routine less routine and more fun?! Add some flavour to your child’s daily brushing with one of the many varieties offered on the market, and watch them take actual interest in brushing their teeth. Just ensure it contains fluoride and you’re good to go!

Flavourful Floss

Not only are there a variety of tasty toothpastes out there, but there are now yummy floss options too. And because flossing can be one of those simple but undesirable tasks, making it more desirable with this tasty trick just makes sense!

Give Your Child Permission to “Pick” Their Teeth

Floss picks are another fun way for your child to remove food particles from in-between their teeth, and might even offer you some quiet time during your next drive too. You can usually find them in bags of 100, and are great for on-the-go flossing!

These are just a few of the fun ways you can add to your child’s stocking while promoting healthy choices that will keep the entire family smiling. Be sure to check back for our next blog post where we will reveal even more fun stocking stuffers to help shorten your Christmas conundrums, while helping to keep your families oral health in optimal order!
