My 12 yr old son hates the (strong) taste of standard "minty" toothpastes and therefore it is a real battle to make him "brush up"! I have searched for an alternative flavoured toothpaste (suitable for his age), or at least one with a "mild" mint flavour, but to no avail. Can anyone help, please?!
Have you tried kids toothpaste (my DS uses 0-2 tesco kids toothpaste) and that's very mild, Or you could try: lemon toothpaste www.shopnewzealand.co.uk/en/cp/Lemon_Toothpaste?currency=GBP Tesco do a strawberry ice cream flavour (personally yuck but each to their own) Boots do a lemon or a lime tooth cleanser - dawood & tanner, And www.greenpeople.co.uk do an organic toothpaste in many weird and wonderful flavours
My DS can't stand mint toothpaste either; he has actually burst into tears on the couple of occasions when he's put my toothpaste on his toothbrush by mistake, so I feel very sympathetic to your son! My DS uses Tom's of Maine strawberry - not sure where I bought it but it's not hard to find. I've just looked at Holland and Barrett's website and they have lots of non-minty toothpastes.
OP, try Waitrose. They do a range called Toms of Maine which is Propolis and Myrhh (not just for Christmas ) also one by Weleda, can't think what flavour that is, but it's not mint. They do tend to be a bit pricey though,anything other than bog standard always is
Crest is vile, IMO - tastes too sugary, bizarrely! i was going to say Weleda, or try the health food shop as well but everyone else has already said that. Another option is to get tooth salt/powder - I can't remember why I started using that at one point, but I did - might have been having trouble with the froth from normal toothpaste. Anyway, it's another thought.
