“Here is a green alternative toothpaste recipe you can make at home. Please enjoy our 3 ingredient homemade toddler toothpaste recipe. My toddler hates minty toothpaste, so we skip the usual peppermint extract, but this is great for adults too. Those little tubes of toddler-safe toothpaste are costly! Also it is safe to swallow, although I wouldn’t recommend eating it. Super quick and super cheap.”
