The Best Kids’ Toothpastes
Oral-B Stages in Rocket Berry
The testers say: They all liked the berry flavor, but the different cartoon characters on the tubes really did the trick (hey, whatever works). One four-year-old girl, after trying a Disney Princess paste, said, “It tastes like princesses and magic.” A five-year-old boy asked, “Does Winnie the Pooh really use it?“
Keep in mind: This brand, which offers different pastes for different ages, reinforces a mandate of dentists: Start early. “By age one, children should be seeing a dentist and getting dental hygiene supervision at home,” says Hale.
To buy: $3 at drugstores.
