Our Healthy Habits Are Creating a Healthy Lifestyle

Our Healthy Habits Are Creating a Healthy Lifestyle

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Influence Central for LISTERINE. I received samples for this review and a promotional item to thank me for participating.

A few weeks ago I shared with you how we had decided it was time to start teaching the littles about healthy dental habits.

I didn’t grow up learning these habits, in fact I did a horrible job taking care of my teeth. I think one of my saving graces was “Swish & Spit” during grade school.

So when we received our box of LISTERINE items to help with this task I was ready to roll with it.

I’ll be honest here… I had slacked a bit on getting the littles back into a dentist. The last one I took them to a year ago turned out to not take our insurance, so the sting of the dental bill still had me reeling.

I decided it was finally time to find another dentist, though, and I brought both of them in for a check up.


Ethan was super proud to share with the dentist that he had been flossing. He loves the LISTERINE ULTRACLEAN ACCESS FLOSSER tool because he can reach places he can’t get to with his hands alone.  After a thorough check, he received all positive marks and was informed that at 6 years old… he finally has a loose tooth!

You can imagine some of the new things he’s been trying with the floss to help encourage that tooth to wiggle just a little more. I especially appreciate that the LISTERINE ULTRACLEAN FLOSS is shred resistant. The few times before that I had allowed Ethan to try to floss alone, he needed a new string before he was finished. Now he can get the job done by himself with 1 strand.


When it was Emma’s turn she was eager to tell the dentist about her new routine of swishing with LISTERINE SMART RINSE for 60 seconds each night.


My littles tend to have a snack before bed and then go straight up to brush. I like that they’ve added this new healthy habit to their routine because the LISTERINE SMART RINSE helps remove food particles they might have missed during brushing. Even as an adult I sometimes have a hard time getting all of the food out. This is just a little added insurance.


The Littles and I have also been spending more time outside soaking up some vitamin D as well. Our trampoline has become a new haven for us to enjoy each other while getting a little more physical activity. They have a great time showing me their newest tumbling skill not realizing they are creating an overall healthy lifestyle for themselves.

By adding LISTERINE products to our healthy habits routine, we hope to round out our efforts of healthy daily activities and better, more healthy, food choices for an overall healthy
lifestyle. The Littles will hopefully take these new habits and routines into adulthood with them!

    Such healthy and important habits!

    It’s great that you are starting them so young. I want to take our kids, but my husband thinks that since these teeth will fall out that it’s a waste of money. Lol. Oh well, I’ll still battle on.

    I love the Listerine smart rinse for my kids. I also use the adult Listerine mouthwash, and I find it quite refreshing for my oral care. Great brand!

  4. So great to teach them young. These healthy habits will last a lifetime!

    I use Listerine products because they work very good in helping keep my teeth and gums healthy. I like the mouthwash and floss. We brush and floss twice a day and use mouthwash daily!

    Makes me think of something I read online about health insurance for individuals and families
