In brief: Prevention
I don't think it is healthy for kids to chew gum. Therefore i would not encourage them using gum in the first place.

In brief: Set limits!
Set your rules and limits for chewing gum for your child.
You may provide opportunities to allow gum chewing in clearly defined guidelines/parameters. Offer an alternative choice when it comes to this consumption. Create self consciousness/inner authority re: choices/decisions made re: gum chewing.
