Disclosure: I participated in a campaign on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Orbit for Kids. I received product samples to facilitate my review and a promotional item as a thank you for participating.
My oldest two girls are 5 and 8 years old and love chewing gum. My 8 year old has been chewing gum for a few years but my middle daughter just began chewing it on her 5th birthday last March. She had been asking me for awhile before that but I didn’t think she was ready (she had swallowed a couple pieces before).
So once her 5th birthday rolled around she was excited to finally have a piece of gum and remembered to ask me first thing in the morning for a piece.
Since then she chews it as often as she can and frequently goes in my purse for a piece. So when I was sent some new Orbit for Kids Sugarfree Gum I knew it would be perfect for my gum-loving 5 and 8 year old.
Orbit for Kids comes in original Bubble Gum flavor and Strawberry Banana. We were sent the Strawberry Banana and my kids both liked it but my 8 year old also likes mint flavors so I’d love to see them come out with a new flavor that has a mint taste.
I like that the new Orbit for Kids gum is sugarfree and that it has additional benefits when chewed after a meal or when they’re unable to brush their teeth:
- stimulates saliva flow to help protect teeth
- neutralizes plaque acids
- helps keep teeth clean by clearing food debris
I definitely try to teach my kids good oral health habits so love that chewing gum can be a great addition to their daily brushing and flossing routine. And now I can feel good about my little minion going in my purse and getting gum when she wants, or better yet keeping a pack of Orbit for Kids in her own little purse when we go out.
