If you read last Tuesday’s Children Times Magazine, it talked about having a pet as a friend. Today we are going to talk about how and when to keep our teeth clean.
Chaka: With me, is Nadine. Could you please tell us your full names?
Nadine: My names are Atete Nadine.
Chaka: Were do you go to school?
Nadine: I go to ‘la fraternity’ nursery school?
Chaka: Tell me, do you brush your teeth?
Nadine: Yes …
Chaka: If you do not mind, can you show them to me.
Chaka: Eh… What happened to your teeth Nadine?
Nadine: (Opens her mouth wide) they got spoilt.
Chaka: Spoilt, with out.
Nadine: With sweets.
Chaka: You mean sweets can spoil out teeth.
Nadine: Yes…When you eat a lot of them.
Chaka: How many did you eat that spoilt your good teeth?
Nadine: I can’t count; I used to eat a lot of them.
Chaka: Do you still use many sweets as always?
Nadine: No, my parents no longer give me money for sweets.
Chaka: Do you still like eating sweets?
Nadine: Yes…but I fear that my remaining teeth can also be spoilt.
Chaka: Really …!
Chaka: Ok tell me, do you brush your teeth?
Chaka: When do you brush your teeth?
Nadine: Every morning.
Chaka: You mean there’s no any other time you brush your teeth?
Nadine: No, I only brush when I go to school.
Chaka: fine, Nadine How many teeth do you have in your mouth.
Nadine: I do not know!
Chaka: Ha! Ha! You have some missing teeth, what happened?
Nadine: They got off them selves.
Chaka: Ha …interesting, how many of them got removed.
Chaka: I am so sorry, but they are growing, keep waiting they will grow big.
Chaka: Thanks very much for your time. Happy holidays Nadine.
Nadine: Thank you.
Dear children I think you have heard from our friend Nadine. Our teeth are sensitive to sweets. Sweets can spoil our teeth if we eat a lot of them.
Our teeth also need to be brushed at least two times a day, to keep them clean and free from germs which can spoil them. It’s holiday time; take care of your teeth!
