Sugar sweet kid toothpaste

I am on my way out of town so my toothpaste (Tom's) is packed away. So, I used my daughter's bubble gum flavour toothpaste. I just need to know: why do kid's toothpastes taste so artificial and why are they so sweet? Kids' sense of taste is way more sensitive than adults' sense of taste so there is no need to oversweeten/overflavour them. When am I going to find an effective natural toothpaste for my daughter? Seems like a good marketplace niche here....

I used to buy kids toothpaste and I agree it tastes crappy so now the kids use colgate same as the adults in the house and the same as I used as a kid..

I agree, I just made my kids use mine

Told them if they wanted that nasty ass stuff they could get a job and buy it themselves. They don't

have a safe trip

hugs and smiles

There ya go kids toothpaste. Soo what flavor would you like? oh oh I got it & onions!! ROFLAO

can we say ewwwwwwwww???? Anyway, I don't know why they make it so sweet. Maybe they think if it tastses good the kids will use it? (they may need to speak to mine)

Good luck on the marketing angle of this...I could help out if ya want. Do the legal stuff n what not

Love Tom's toothpaste ... Can't take that bubblegum stuff ... But have had to use it occasionally, too! Have a wonderful trip ... Be blessed.

This is my blog - Comes With Warning Labels. There are many like it, but this one is mine.

Lush do some good natural toothpastes, not sure if you have any stores in Canada though, but just incase you do, all their products are natural

it's just an incentive to get them to use the stuff, I guess. the same way flintstones vitamins taste like candy.

Saddle: I would love to get my kid to use adult toothpaste but so far kids is it. I also don't like her to use artificial, fluoride containing toothpastes (I don't like them either).

Bct2Esi: My daughter would be good at making messes in order to pay for her toothpaste

JustSweet: You know I'm vegetarian. So the liver and onion flavour would have to be liver and onion substitute (tofu?)

Safira: I wish that we could get the giant Tom's up here. As is, Tom's is a little pricey. Thank you for the wishes

Tabitha: Lush is here only it's in the more populated centres over 8 hours away

Citizen: All of these things are so sweet yet they don't really taste good. Candy is much better.

Nikki: I wouldn't have a problem with sweet tastes if it encouraged my daughter to brush more. Unfortunately she just eats the toothpaste and it says on the warning to never ingest. Sweet poison
