We all want our kids to have the best possible start in life and part of that is having good cavity prevention habits and dental hygiene early on. A large part of good dental hygiene is good nutrition and minimal sweets but when you’re a kid, that’s the last thing on your mind – We came up with a few recommended snacks that are sure to keep their sweet tooth in check.
Snacks that are high in sugars or carbohydrates and are acidic are unhealthy for your teeth. “Sticky” snacks that can adhere to your teeth are especially bad, as they increase the chance of causing cavities. Foods that may want to be avoided include hard candies, foods with high acidity, sodas and juices. It’s also recommended to avoid any potato chips as they contain starches which get stuck on teeth, contributing to decay and cavities.
Our team strives to help children feel comfortable and have fun as they visit our offices – At TenderCare Dental, we look forward to partnering with you to lay a strong foundation of good dental health in your children! Click Here to Find out More
