Healthy Habits Every Day

Virginia Berman

How do we teach children healthy habits at home?  How can we add structure and play to the tasks children must do?  And specifically how do we get 4 and 5 year olds how to brush teeth thoroughly each night and morning?  We've found a way to motivate children to brush for the full 2 minutes and to brush and evenly through the mouth.  

It's our Two Minute Turtle. This is Invent Boston's first product. We look forward to sharing more products as we develop them in response to our daily challenges of living busy parenting lives while building healthy habits as a family, every day, at home.

I'm Virginia and I will share these tools that help me  and my children get and stick to daily routines.  We design and develop products to make hectic lives a little less so. We look forward to hearing from you and hope to make one daily routine, toothbrushing, a little better. 

 Healthy habits keep families around the world alive. Inspired by small coop farmers whose hard work keeps food on the table, every day, we value simple daily habits--even the littlest ones, like toothbrushing.  This Ugandan coffee farmer plants, harvests, carries, cooks and cleans for her family.   Amazing.  And we think we're exhausted at the end of the day?!  photo courtesy of Tracy Powell & Equal Exchange
