Sam’s Club and Metlife Foundation Team Up to Support
Sesame Street’s Oral Health Project
Dental caries (tooth decay) is one of the most common health problems impacting young children’s primary teeth. In fact, nearly 40-to-50 percent of children will be affected by tooth decay before age five  and according to the latest Surgeon General’s report, Oral Health in America, more than 51 million school hours are lost each year to dental-related conditions. In response to these facts, Sesame Workshop, the nonprofit educational organization behind Sesame Street, in partnership with Sam’s Club Giving Program and MetLife Foundation, has developed Healthy Teeth, Healthy Me, a bilingual (English/Spanish), multimedia outreach initiative motivating children 2 to 5 years of age, their parents, and caregivers to care for children’s dental health. The 350,000 free outreach kits are being distributed nationwide and are also available at www.sesamestreet.org/teeth. Healthy Teeth, Health Me features brand new songs, animated segments and celebrity guests Bruno Mars, David Hyde Pierce, Nicole Kidman, Amy Ryan, Wendy Williams, Jay Sean, Naomi Watts and Liev Schreiber.
I went to the site and checked it out. There is some really cute activities such as games, music, and printables. My three year year old needs to get a little better at brushing, my five year old brushes all of the time, and my seven year old hates it!!!
