I don’t often enjoy writing about bacteria that cause both tooth decay and ear infections. Eewww.

I’ve been attempting to reduce sugar in every possible place and oral care was a sneaky one I hadn’t considered. I’m a happy mom and they are happy kids.
Xylitol is a natural sweetener that helps reduce harmful bacteria in the mouth and aid in the re-mineralization of tooth enamel. There are several different xylitol brands but Xyla, a Canadian brand, produces xylitol from North American hardwood trees and is non-GMO and completely natural.
