The Teeth Cut and Paste is a simple activity that enables children to cut out and paste the foods to the correct teeth. The bad foods go to the bad teeth and the good foods go onto the good teeth. This is great for children to understand the impact of foods and the effect they have on teeth,
The Healthy Teeth Clip Cards are a great way for children to identify what foods are healthy and unhealthy for their teeth, These should be laminated and cut in half. Children use pegs to clip onto either healthy or unhealthy teeth depending on the food choice. This is also great to be used during group time discussion when explaining healthy teeth to children.
As part of Dental Health Week, which starts this week, the Australian Dental Asocciation is offering a free dental children's storybook Guardians of the Gums available to download. Created together with BeeHealthy Stories and SugarByHalf, the story tells the battle faced by the Guardians of the Gums as they protect the teeth from sugar and bacteria.
