  • Using pictures of foods or actual food models, discuss which foods contribute to healthy teeth and those that may be harmful.
  • Make a collage of snacks that are good for teeth.
  • Read the books My Friend the Dentist or Bugs Bunny Goes to the Dentist.
  • Give each child a toothbrush to use at daycare. Demonstrate correct tooth brushing procedure and encourage children to use them after meals and snacks.
