Princess Nagger is a bubble head. No, I didn’t say bobble head (though she can imitate one pretty darn good), I said bubble head. Meaning, she loves to chew gum and loves to blow bubbles.
The tricky part for me has always been to make sure she has gum that is actually good for her, and not cause more damage to her teeth than she already has, thanks to her inheriting soft teeth from me. I know, right?
Did you know that Orbit has gum for kids? Color me surprised! Orbit for Kids Sugarfree Gum comes in kid friendly flavors of original bubble gum and strawberry banana flavor, both flavors are what Princess Nagger loves:
Since Princess Nagger has something against minty-fresh gum (which means she leaves my gum alone), I always had to find an alternative while still making sure her teeth will stay healthy. That is not an easy task, especially since she loves the flavor of bubble gum. My dad was a fanatical bubble gum chewer, which is probably where I got my gum chewing passion and passed it down to Princess Nagger, too).
Observing good dental hygiene with kids can be tricky at times, I know for me it’s a challenge to get the kids to willingly brush their teeth twice a day, and make sure they do a thorough job rather than the halfhearted attempt they generally try to get away with.
At least chewing sugarfree gum can help increase their chances of not getting cavities. Now we need to work on them being a little more enthusiastic for flossing. Ahem.
Princess Nagger was excited when we received a package from Orbit for her to try out the new gum:
There were actually three packs of gum included, but she couldn’t wait to try it out before I took pictures. She also decided to give the mouthwash a try, even though she’s not a fan of mint – she still doesn’t like it. Now if we could find a bubblegum flavored mouthwash, she’d be all over that! She definitely prefers the flossing picks over string floss, so that was a nice bonus as well.
She absolutely loved the Strawberry-Banana flavor, and graciously gave me a piece to try, too. The flavor lasts a long time, something I’m picky about.
Princess Nagger is looking forward to seeing if we can find the bubblegum flavor, so she can alternate between the two – and see which one blows better bubbles. She seems to think the bubblegum flavor will blow better bubbles just because ‘bubble’ is in the name. I’ll keep you posted on that one.
