February is National Children’s Dental Health month and it’s also the month of one of our favorite holiday of sweets! Valentine’s Day is around the corner and your little ones are probably itching for some chocolates. Some candy is okay in moderation, but don’t over-do it!
At Hamby Family Dental Center, we care so much about our patients’ dental health that we’ve come up with a list of 6 alternative Valentine gift ideas for kids to enjoy.
Kids love toys! Small toys are a great way to work your way around harmful candy during holidays. Kids’ consumption of sweets can easily be overdone, so these nifty little cards and toys serve as a healthier alternative to show your love. These are also great for classroom Valentine’s celebrations!
