I’m not sure what the big deal is about sugarfree chewing gum, but my kids love it. I rarely allow my children to eat candy, or chew gum to be honest. I do allow my children to treat themselves now and again. If my kids are given the opportunity to choose a candy while visiting the store, you better know they’re going to choose chewing gum. I do have to give them credit, typically they choose the sugarfree gum without any complaining.
Have you heard? Orbit for kids gum has been awarded the ADA Seal of Acceptance. Orbit for Kids Sugar free gum now comes in two fabulous flavors: Original Bubble Gum, and Strawberry Banana. It comes in the 14 tab envelopes, and Micro Pack Multi-Pack Bags which include 10-packs of 6-tab micro pack envelopes.
The first things my kids look for when they pick out their gum is the envelope style packaging that’s fun. I’m sure you can see by the pictures that Orbit for Kids sugarfree chewing gum is just that: bright and fun. Cool packaging isn’t all that Orbits kids gum has going for them. Did you know that letting your kids chew Orbit for kid’s sugar free gum for 20 minutes after eating and drinking, or during those times when they’re unable to brush can help protect their teeth? Yes, by allowing your kids to chew Orbit for kids helps to keep the kids mouth clean in-between brushing, and stimulate saliva flow, which helps protect teeth by reducing plaque acids and strengthening teeth. It’s important to remember that brushing is by far the most important thing you can have your kids do, but allowing them to chew on sugarfree gum now and again can help protect their teeth.
The kids and I have always been a fan of Orbit chewing gum. We were excited to try Orbit for Kids Strawberry Banana. My oldest Catie, has become quite the prankster with her younger sisters. She decided to tell the two younger girls they were supposed to taste test this gum a certain way, or I could get fired, lol. I couldn’t help myself, I went along with it. Can you tell me the above picture how serious they were listening to their big sister? She was telling them they could only chew two times, then they had to place it on their tongue, move it around, chew two more time, then place it under their tongue, or something like that to get the true flavor.
It was all fun and games until Catie started making this face. Once Vayda noticed her face she knew Catie was being a brat, and they both started acting silly. I seriously think it was because mom brough the camera out. My kids tend to be camera hogs, if they know they’re going to be in a picture going on the blog, they make it a point to have as much fun as possible. Maybe that’s not the reason, but I know it wasn’t sugar in the gum is sugar free lol.
Poor little Mattie took her gum chewing very serious. I tried to tell her that Catie was playing with her, and she could have fun chewing her gum. She told me, “SHHH Mom I can’t hear what the Strawberry in the gum is saying.” I just left her alone, and took pictures of her listening to the Strawberry. Oh, the faces arae because I asked her if the Banana was talking too, lol. She was upset with me and that the girls and I were trying to mess up her chewing concentration, or something like that. Look at all those serious gum chewing/tasting faces she is making at me. Then BAM the flavor hit, or she heard the Strawberry. I’m not sure which, and BAM she told me she loved it and it made her feel magic. So now I have two crazy girls, and another that feels “magic“. Either way, they all loved it, but I wonder what my one normal kid Bud thinks of Orbit for Kids.
Bud he’s so much fun. All I heard out of his mouth after giving him Orbit for kids was, “More please”. I broke and finally gave him two pieces at once, and that’s where this smile came from. He knew his sisters only had once piece, and he had two. It’s the small things in life that bring us happy faces like that. Bud loved the Orbit for kids, and he’s my one kid that never gives me any problems about brushing.
Getting my girls to brush can be a task, but I know I’m not the only parent in the world with this issue. I have tried different toothbrushes, tooth brushing songs, and dozen other things to make brushing more fun. My 8-year-old acts like her arm is going to fall off when I set the timer for 2 minutes, lol. I have come to accept the fact that it’s probably going to be something I fight with them about for many more moons.
Now I’m not a mean mom, I just do not want my children’s life to be consumed by junk food. It is nice to know that when I allow my children to treat themselves to a pack of sugarfree chewing gum it’s at least helping protect their teeth.
