Trista Sutter Talks Children's Oral Health

- As spring begins, parents are concerned about allergies, asthma and other seasonal health issues. While tooth decay usually doesnt usually make that list, the cdc reports that its still one of the most common-but preventable-childhood diseases. In fact, it's five times as common as asthma and seven times as common as hay fever, and if left untreated, it can affect childrens ability to eat, speak, learn and play.

Today, the original Bachelorette, Trista Sutter is talking about how she manages dental health for her own children and what she's doing to be a champion for kids.  She is teaming up with Colgate, Walmart and the not-for-profit organization Champions for Kids for the SIMPLE Giving campaign, which provides oral care products to needy children in school districts locally. 

As part of the campaign, Colgate will also be donating $100,000 of oral care products to help school districts in need. You can help too by simply purchasing and donating toothbrushes, toothpaste and hand soap at your local Walmart from March 22 through April 7. All donations will go to a school district in your area.

Trista Nicole Sutter was the runner-up on Season One of the ABC reality television show The Bachelor, before becoming the star of the first season of its companion show The Bachelorette. She chose Ryan Sutter as the winner, and the couple was married on December 6, 2003. Trista & Ryan's Wedding drew over 26 million viewers, making it one of the most-widely viewed episodes in the history of reality television. Trista has also appeared on ABC's Dancing with the Stars and recently shared the renewal of her vows with ABC viewers after 10 years of marriage. The Sutters now live in Eagle County, Colorado, where Ryan is a firefighter in the nearby city of Vail.
