What SLS Free Toothpastes w/ Fluoride do you use for the family?

I've decided to try and switch to the family to SLS free fluoride toothpastes but I am having having trouble finding good ones.

DS just started liking the Kiss My Face Berry Mint which is good. It took some warming up the the flavor I think.

I currently have JASON Sea Fresh but I'm not liking it at all, I feel like it leaves behind a resido that requires me to spit several extra times.

DD uses little treehouse which is good for her. (its what I have my kids use until they are good at spitting - fluoride free)

Have you found any good SLS Free Toothpastes with Fluoride?

My husband and I use Tom's of Maine Clean and Gentle. It has fluoride but no SLS. I haven't found one that I feel comfortable with for my 4 year old--I had been using Tom's Children's Toothpaste for her but it has SLS. Then the dentist gave her a goody bag with small tube Crest or something that is blue and sparkly and full of nasty stuff that I prefer to avoid and she insisted on using it. She'd better enjoy it while it lasts because I certainly won't be buying that crap for her!

Trader Joe's Fennel, it's fantastic! Eventually gonna add that to my list of things I make, but haven't had time yet.

Also, Trader Joe's did have a Peppermint Toothpaste with fluoride and no SLS, but I'm not sure if they carry it anymore (they were out last time I looked). Hopefully they do because it was cheaper than Tom's.

I grew up in maine with Toms and I do like it, what I'm switching from only to get away from SLS. Good to know they have a SLS free flouride TP but I can't do Toms peppermint, its too strong tasting.

my kids use to get that sparkle crap too, (though never let them try it), I've told the dentist they can get a new toothbrush but please nothing else.

My kids use treehouse with no fluoride until good with spitting, I believe it actually FDA approved for eating so there is no concern there.

I recently got the Kiss my Face triple action with fluoride and love it. It has Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate which is a different SLS and appears to be a more natural thing not to be as concerned about (though some avoid it). it has a good flavor and cleans well, I like it. I read about it at honest.com (though how much I trust honest...). The Kids Berry Flavor doesn't have either SLS.

I did also see a tripe action and a whitening option from the Natural Dentist that I might try at some point(disclaimer - I've read its very "paste"). My son is getting low on the Kiss My Face and since I don't think he loves the flavor I got a Grape Flavored Toothpaste from Natural Dentist w/ Fluoride that was rated well on amazon. I can report back on it later. Neither of these has the alternative SLS either.

Thanks for all the suggestions!
