Getting your preschooler to brush their teeth – Try a New Toothpaste!

Is your preschooler fighting you at bedtime or in the morning when you ask them to brush their teeth?

Does your kindergartener complain they don’t like the taste of toothpaste?

Same here – until I finally found toothpaste my daughter liked.  It really was as simple as finding one she didn’t find overpowering.

I received this product for free from Moms Meet to use and post my honest opinions. Compensation for this post was provided and this page may contain affiliate links.  For my full disclosure policy click here.

I was lucky enough to get some samples of Green Beaver toothpaste. 

Green Beaver toothpastes gently clean and polish teeth with 100% natural ingredients; they are non-GMO, free of artificial flavours and dyes, and do not contain sodium lauryl sulfate

Two of the samples were designed for kids – Their Kids’ line of Naturapeutic toothpaste is 100% natural, fluoride free, and safe for toddlers and kids to swallow. We got the bubble gum and strawberry.

The Strawberry flavor is made from real strawberries, and the Bubble Gum flavor is made from real cherries.

I have probably bought over ten different flavours and brands of toothpaste trying to find one my daughter would like.

The majority were really strong and she would dramatically rub her tongue and say “yuck!”.  With the two green beaver ones she actually liked the flavor – I tried them myself out of curiosity and they are mild but fresh tasting.

I highly recommend you give them a try if you have a child that isn’t liking the big brand’s flavours.  The fight to brush has definitely been made easier.

I was also given three adult varieties to try: green apple, zesty orange and whitening.

I will say the less thick formula of these takes some getting used to. They don’t foam as much as non-natural toothpastes do.  

Both the apple and orange were delicious. 

I found the tooth whitening one gave me some sensitivity so I had to stop using it.  If you have used at home kits or had your teeth whitened at a dentist’s office and didn’t have pain then this toothpaste would likely be a good one for you. The whitening comes from papaya – super interesting!

Overall there are a lot of benefits and as a Canadian I love that it’s made here.

  • Green Beaver’s 100% Natural line of toothpastes are fluoride free, and come in delicious flavours like Green Apple and Zesty Orange, which are enriched with calcium and vitamin C to strengthen teeth.
  • Approved by Health Canada, their Naturapeutic line are the only toothpastes that can claim to prevent cavities without fluoride and the only anticavity kids’ toothpastes that are safe to swallow.
  • Green Beaver toothpastes are made in Canada and packaged in recyclable materials with biodegradable ingredients.
  • Green Beaver Naturapeutic Toothpaste typically retails for $6.99–$7.99 CAD.

Overall I highly recommend the kids toothpaste for kids who are still swallowing and/or find non-natural toothpaste really strong.  Give them a try and let me know what you think!
