Kids can be so fussy about toothpaste! Some don't mind a minty flavour but others absolutely hate it, so I put together this blog post all about the new Grants Kids Toothpaste and the wonderful Australian company behind it.
Kids are notoriously fussy when it comes to brushing teeth. Trying to get them to properly clean them can be a nightmare, and they often end up swallowing a bit of toothpaste in the process! Grants of Australia is a beloved Australian natural toothpaste brand that has been around for decades, and they have just come out with a brand new flavour that was made especially for picky kids and doesn't contain any nasty chemical ingredients.
What makes Grants Toothpaste different to other brands?
Grants Toothpaste is a certified Australian made and owned brand that has been family-operated for over 30 years! This Cruelty-Free range utilises all-natural ingredients and does not contain sugar, SLS, colours, parabens or fluoride, instead using a Calcium Carbonate base in Certified Vegan formulas! Unlike some mainstream brands, all ingredients are disclosed on packaging, so you know exactly what's in the tube. The mild-tasting formulas can be used by the whole family and contain quality ingredients, not to mention they are affordable too!
How did Grants start?
Grants of Australia was established in 1984 by Mike and Michelle Aronson, who owned health food shops and were concerned about the amount of chemicals in regular toothpaste and the effect it could have on their children. They had their own children test all the herbal toothpastes they sold in their shop, all of which the kids absolutely hated the taste of! Finally they decided to start making their own toothpaste that was chemical free, tasted great and could be used by kids too, so Grants of Australia was born (it was named after the street the family was living in at the time!) and their daughter Tammy eventually joined the family business too!
Which Grants Toothpaste is right for you?
Grants Blueberry Burst Kids Natural Toothpaste
A brand new addition to the Grants range, the Grants Blueberry Burst Kids Natural Toothpaste was made especially for fussy children who don't enjoy the minty flavours found in most toothpastes. This new formula has even been tested by kids for taste and texture! It has a delicious fruity Berry taste thanks to natural Blueberry flavour (which kids love the taste of) and encourages regular teeth brushing. A great alternative to mainstream sugary toothpastes, this paste can help kids get used to brushing their teeth so they can eventually start using adult toothpastes, and is suitable for kids aged 2 and older! This delicious Gluten Free formula also contains Calcium and Phosphate Salts to maintain oral health as well as Xylitol from tree bark to reduce the growth of cavity-causing bacteria.
Grants Mild Mint with Aloe Vera Toothpaste
The Grants Mild Mint with Aloe Vera flavour is the most popular in the range because of how similar it is to mainstream minty toothpastes! The perfect transition toothpaste for kids and ideal for the entire family, the mild, subtle mint formula cleans teeth, encourages healthy gums and leaves your mouth feeling fresh. With the natural healing benefits of Organic Aloe Vera and natural herbs, this paste is ideal for those with sensitive teeth and gums as well as mouth ulcers. Pure Mint Oil, Rosemary, Sage and Thyme provide a refreshing flavour that leaves your mouth feeling deeply clean and revitalised.
Grants Orange Cinnamon with Neem Oil Toothpaste
An alternative for kids or adults who really cannot stand the taste of mint, the Grants Cinnamon Zest Toothpaste combines Cinnamon, Orange Peel Oil and Neem Oil for a fresh, zesty cinnamon flavour. This refreshing formula also contains Aloe and Xylitol from tree bark to effectively clean teeth to help fight tooth decay and promote healthy gums.
