That struggle is real right, to get your toddler get his/her teeth brushed? They cry, scream, fight and what not! Many times it happens that they swallow up the toothpaste, and that’s dam scary! So for that you, as a momma or papa have to pick the right toothpaste for your sweetheart, which should be chemical free, also has a nice flavor.
Keeping the above concerns in mind, there are some of the brands which are producing toothpaste for kids, which are less harmful even when swallowed up. Fluoride, which is great for protecting teeth, is equally dangerous when swallowed. So, it is always advisable to pick up toothpastes which are fluoride free, till the time your baby is in the mode that he/she swallows it up.
Here we have selectively picked 5 of such toothpastes which are free of harsh chemicals, and also has some or the other attractive flavour to make your toddler not to refuse brushing his/her teeth (the list is applicable for kids till 4 years of age approx). So here you go:
- Colgate My First Baby and Toddler Toothpaste
This toothpaste is fluoride free, without any artificial colours, preservatives, or sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS). It is specifically made for kids less than 2 years of age and is safe if swallowed. This toothpaste comes in a mild bubble fruit flavour. Definitely safe baby toothpaste!
The only drawback of this one is that it comes in a single flavour, so if your kid doesn’t end up liking, you have to check for some other brand.
2. Chicco Toothpaste
This toothpaste is specially designed for babies up to 3 years of age. It’s again a non-fluoridated toothpaste, which is also free from any preservatives. It comes in apple banana flavour which is mostly liked by kids. Also it is devoid of SLS and has low abrasion formula. Also the fruity and bubble gum mixed kind of smell comes very attractive for kids.
3. Pigeon Children Toothpaste Toothpaste
Being a yummy orangy flavoured toothpaste, this one is also fluoride free. It has a low foaming formula and an orangish tint of colour for the paste. The orangish smell and the flavour of the paste is never a fail for kids!! It can be used for kids up to 6 years of age as well.
4. Jack N’ Jill Natural Toothpaste
This one has so many amazing flavors: black-current, blueberry, raspberry, strawberry, banana, unflavored, and I am sure you with get the right flavor choice for your sweetheart from this wide range of flavors. Over that, it is all natural; it contains organic calendula to soothe gums and organic natural blueberry flavor. Additionally, this toothpaste has no preservatives, and is fluoride free, sugar free, colour free, and SLS free.
5. Kiss My Face Kids Fluoride Free Toothpaste
This berry flavoured formula is made with natural ingredients, such as aloe leaf extract and tea tree oil. It is vegan, cruelty free, fluoride free, SLS free, artificial colour, flavour, & sweetener free, triclosan free, paraben free and gluten free.
Again the major drawback is your baby might not like the berry flavour which is the lone variant in this brand, and in that case you have to check for other brand alternatives. Apart from that fact, it is one of the best toothpaste out there!
There you are. Maybe with this list of these amazing chemical free toothpastes for kids, I hope your nightmare of getting him bushed will be over now. LOL! Try out different flavours, check
