A NEW video advising parents on the importance of looking after young children's teeth has been launched.

Entitled More Choices, the video is aimed at parents and carers of children aged six to 18 months.

It will be used by health visitors in Batley, Dewsbury and Spen.

It offers advice on brushing teeth, choosing the right kind of drinks, visiting the dentist and weaning.

The video has been made by North Kirklees Primary Care Trust and Calderdale and Kirklees Community Dental Care.
