Children with poor oral health can experience a range of problems: difficulty concentrating due to tooth pain; health issues, such as infections; and impaired growth and development.
Four colorful and informative posters on oral health from the National Center on Early Childhood Health and Wellness (NCECHW).
The I Like My Teeth posters share positive messages about drinking water with fluoride, brushing teeth with fluoride, and children’s oral health in general. The four are:
- Fluoride: cavity fighter (English) (Spanish)
- Drinking water with fluoride keeps teeth health and strong (English)
- Strengthen your body: one glass at a time. (English) (Spanish)
- You’re teaching them to… (English) (Spanish)
Early childhood staff can use them as a teaching aid in classrooms and at parent events.
The posters are posted on the NCECHW portal of the Early Childhood Learning & Knowledge Center (ECLKC).
