Review & Giveaway: Orbit For Kids

ORBIT-FOR-KIDS_1000

While attending BlogHer13, I was introduced to Orbit For Kids. My daughter, Ava is not yet at the age to start chewing gum, but I really believe in what this new gum stands for.

I remember as a kid my mom would do anything to keep me from a gumball machine. She tried everything, from telling me they were dirty to if I chewed one my teeth would fall out. That’s why I love Orbit For Kids. The brand offers sugarfree gum that gives parents a fun and convenient way to protect their children’s teeth between brushings. You don’t have to keep your kids away from gum.

The gum comes in traditional bubblegum flavour, so children can feel like they are chewing bubble gum, but not with the sugar that coat their teeth.

The sugarfree gum has been given the American Dental Association seal of acceptance. The organization believes the benefit of chewing sugarfree gum like Orbit For Kids include cleaning the mouth of food debris and stimulation of salvia flow, which helps protect teeth by reducing plaque acids and strengthening teeth.

Obviously, Orbit For Kids is meant to act as a compliment to healthy oral care practices like daily brushing, flossing and rinsing with mouth wash. It is one more thing to teach your children to use to help teach the importance of  healthy oral care.

It is not known how much of the link is down to genetics, influences in the womb or later lifestyle. Previous research has shown a link between obesity in pregnancy and changes in appetite control and metabolism in children.… [read more]
