Jack N' Jill Kids introduces Tooth Sparkles! Packed with vitamin D, two sources of calcium (hydroxyapatite and calcium carbonate) together with xylitol, Tooth Sparklesare an ingenious and yummy way to support healthy teeth!
- Vitamin D assists teeth development
- Hydroxyapatite supports teeth remineralisation
- Calcium assists healthy bone development
- Packed with xylitol, just like Jack N’ Jill Toothpaste
Use daily, in-between teeth brushing times.
Chewing helps clean the teeth, especially when chewing something mildly abrasive like an apple, or our Jack N’ Jill Tooth Sparkles. Our crushable/chewable tablet has a gentle eﬀect on the teeth to help clean. Swishing the crushed tablet around the teeth with your tongue is even better.
Whilst chewing, saliva production increases, which also helps clean the mouth and neutralise acids (from food or bacteria in plaque). Neutralising acids in the mouth slows down tooth decay!
Jack N’ Jill Tooth Sparkles are also packed with xylitol, just like our toothpaste. Designed to be chewed/crushed and then swallowed on-the-go, like after lunch at day care or school.
Of course, they are naturally free from sugar, nuts, gluten and artificial sweeteners.
And the taste?
SUPER YUM STRAWBERRY!

Calcium in Jack N' Jill Tooth Sparkles:
Jack N’ Jill Tooth Sparkles contains 2 forms of calcium (calcium carbonate and hydroxyapatite) for a total dose of 150mg per chewable tablet.
Hydroxyapatite is the main mineral component of tooth enamel.
Our bones are made up of up to 70% hydroxyapatite.
Hydroxyapatite is effective in reducing dental decay, especially in children. It has been found to be comparable to fluoride in its effectiveness but unlike fluoride it is safe to swallow.
Bioavailable calcium in the blood supports the healthy development of teeth and bones. Inclusion of hydroxyapatite in the diet has been shown to increase remineralisation of tooth enamel more effectively than calcium carbonate alone.
Dietary sources of Calcium: Milk, cheese, dairy and green leafy vegetables like Kale.
RDA (Recommended Daily Allowances):
Children’s Calcium RDA (total amount provided by a combination of diet and supplement)
1-3 years: 500mg per day
4-8 years: 700mg per day
9-13 years: 1000-1300mg per day
Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) in Jack N' Jill Tooth Sparkles:
The presence of Vitamin D3 in the body is critical in assisting teeth development and calcium absorption in bones.
Generally, it is common for dietary intake of Vitamin D3 (Cholecalciferol) to be inadequate.
Most Vitamin D3 in our bodies is derived from exposure to sunlight. Where exposure to sunlight is minimal, or a deficiency has been identified, RDA (from diet, sunlight exposure & supplements) should be at least 15mcg per day (600IU).
Vitamin D helps support the immune system and bone & teeth mineralisation. It influences tooth formation and crown development.
Vitamin D enables calcium to remineralise and strengthen tooth enamel. Vitamin D + Calcium supplements have been shown to reduce dental caries in children.
Dietary Sources of Vitamin D3: Wild fatty fish (Salmon, Herring, Mackerel), Liver, Eggs
RDA (Recommended Daily Allowances):
Children’s Vitamin D3 RDA (total amount provided by a combination of diet and supplement)
1-3 years: 10mcg (400IU)
4-13 years: At least 15mcg (600IU)
How to get daily Vitamin D3 from sunlight: A 6-7 minute walk with arms exposed to sun mid-morning or mid-afternoon in Summer. In Winter, as above, for up to 40 minutes at noon.
Xylitol in Jack N' Jill Tooth Sparkles:
Reduces plaque formation by inhibiting Streptococcus Mutans - a bacteria found in the mouth which is responsible for plaque formation.
Xylitol increases saliva flow, which is rich in calcium. This enables tooth remineralisation and strengthening of tooth enamel.
