Remember my recent post about Zollipops®? Zollipops was created by a nine-year-old right here in Michigan. You can read the full story here as a refresher.
The folks over at Zollipops just sent over some new info that they wanted me to share with you regarding this healthy treat. Check it out:
WOLVERINE LAKE, MI– (February 24, 2015) – To help support the ADA’s (American Dental Association’s) National Children’s Dental Health Month (NCDHM), LOL, the makers of Zollipops, are giving 100,000 of the good-for-your-teeth pops to dentists and schools, across the country, to encourage healthy mouths and beautiful smiles.
Each February, the ADA creates a month-long health initiative to bring together dental professionals, healthcare providers and educators to promote good oral health, focused on kids. This year’s campaign slogan is “Defeat Monster Mouth.” When Alina Morse, the nine-year-old inventor of Zollipops, heard about the initiative, she decided to help, by giving away her tasty treats for free.
“We are putting our money, and Zollipops, where YOUR mouth is, to support NCDHM’s 2015 campaign to ‘Defeat Monster Mouth,'” said Morse, the inventor of the ‘Clean Teeth Pop.’ “We have the same goal: to promote healthy teeth and gums!”
“I invented Zollipops because I couldn’t see why keeping your teeth healthy and clean couldn’t be fun,” said Morse. “I don’t know a kid who doesn’t like candy, and sweets can be really damaging to your mouth. Why not have a candy that is good for you?”
Through its “100,000 Smiles” campaign, Zollipops is committed to giving away 100,000 Zollipops, at no cost, to help support the ADA’s National Children’s Dental Health Month.
