The free packs contained toothbrushes, toothpaste and mouthwash, handed out by NHS Lanarkshire’s Oral Health Team at the International Children’s Game's opening and closing ceremonies.

“We’ve been really busy and by the middle of the afternoon we’d ran out of the packs. Oral health is an important part of health and wellbeing.
“Hopefully we’ll help remind people to look after their teeth as well as their overall physical fitness.”
