Crayola Squeeze-a-Color

Designed to look like a miniature box of crayons, this toothpaste 3-pack is great for your young brushers and provides a dose of cavity-fighting fluoride. Recommended for ages 2 and up, kids can choose from melon, apple, or berry flavors, and they can choose a different color every time they brush.

Tanner’s Tasty Pastes

Created by a pediatric dentist who knows how tough it can be to get kids to brush, these xylitol-sweetened fluoride pastes come in fantastic dessert flavors like cha-cha chocolate and vanilla bling. There’s no artificial flavors or colors, no sodium lauryl sulfate, and there’s even a baby formula for beginner brushers that is safe to swallow.

The Honest Company’s Strawberry Blast

If you prefer a natural toothpaste that is gentle, fluoride-free, and also comes from a company that is socially and environmentally responsible as well as against animal cruelty, The Honest Company’s strawberry blast toothpaste covers it all. It contains calcium to strengthen enamel, and uses baking soda and silica to gently cleanse the teeth, all while being gentle on little stomachs.
