Do your mindees brush teeth after lunch? Mine always have but recently ive heard dentists recommend waiting 30mins after a meal?? And because of this some nurserys dont bother at all?
Im now going to be doing 3 school runs between 11.30-12.30 so lunch is going to be rushed, im wondering if teeth brushing is really needed at lunch?

I have been told by my dentist that you should brush teeth BEFORE eating not after?

I don't clean teeth after lunch either. However, I do give a small cube of cheese after lunch. This neutralises the mouth and helps to slow plaque build up (and is a small calcium contribution too).

When we do teeth as part of out All About Me theme the children clean their teeth then all together to practise how to do it properly. Then they take home the toothbrush and toothpaste along with some posters and leaflets - courtesy of the Stop The Rot campaign.
