Jennie Garth Promotes Healthy Habits for Back to School

I recently met up with former Beverly Hills, 90210 star Jennie Garth for the launch of Crest and Oral-B’s new line, For Me. The new line features a complete list of oral care products for tweens, while Oral-B Stages, for children from four months to seven years of age, has added the Disney characters Jake and the Neverland Pirates to their line-up.

Garth, who now has her own reality show, A Little Bit Country, says back to school is the perfect time to revamp kids’ habits. The mom of three admits that between the hustle and bustle of her family’s “crazy schedules,” it’s hard to keep up with the things they should.

To help encourage healthy habits, Garth starts early by telling her daughters it’s their job to take care of themselves.”I think that’s an important message to give them for all things in their life,” she explains. “They’re their own best advocate in any situation, so I start right away and model what they need to do.”

When I asked her what she liked most about being a mom, she smiled and said, “snuggle time,” without missing a beat. “Just a little of that compassion and empathy,” she explains. “I nurture that into my children, instill that into them, and then they can give it.”
