A DRIVE to improve children's dental health has been taking place in Fartown.
The Deighton and East Fartown Sure Start group held a dental health day at Fartown Village Hall.
Fifty parents attending the weekly New Ways Women's Group were invited to swap their children's old feeding bottles for drinking beakers, which are thought to be better for dental health.
Toothbrushes and toothpaste were also given out, along with ``tooth fairy" books and stickers to encourage children to care for their teeth.
Community dental health promotion officers were there to offer advice and information.
The event was targeted at Fartown and Birkby because the areas have high levels of tooth decay in children under five.
Deighton and East Fartown Sure Start is a Government-funded body which aims to increase childcare facilities, improve the health and education of children and support parents trying to find work.
It is organising further dental health events in the new year.
