You can start with a non flouride toothpaste to teach your child about brushing, then move on to a fluoride toothpaste. Most kids toothpaste have very low concentrations of fluoride so it's not too harmful if accidentally swallowed. It's the technique of brushing that's more important and making sure that the teeth are brushed at night just before sleeping and nothing other than water is consumed after that.
