The Tiddalick takes on teeth program aimed to encourage Indigenous children to drink water between meals and to 'swig, swish, swallow' with water after eating. The character of Tiddalick was based on a character in an Indigenous dreamtime story. A resource package, Tiddalick's toothy tale package, was developed and included a teaching resource, oral health policy proforma, storybook, video, song, water bottles, stickers and a poster to be used in early childhood centres.
