Thumbs Up: Keeping Kids Cavity-Free 😁

This is a hot topic for parents. For all of us really …. who wants to be told they have a cavity while sitting in the dentist chair?! Getting a cavity is never fun, no matter how old you are.

I am mom of two kids; my youngest, who is now 11, has no cavities and my oldest, now 17, had a tiny one when he was 6. Thankfully, it was on a baby tooth and because of my son’s fear of needles we pulled the tooth ,rather than fill it, as he was going to lose that tooth naturally shortly.

We top ours with cultured butter, pesto, and hemp seeds!
