FOOD FOR YOUR CHILD'S STRONGER TEETH



As a parent you might have a dental routine for your child. Brushing and flossing twice a day is good but, food has a huge impact on our teeth and it’s time to discover some tooth friendly foods and sacks for you to incorporate in your child’s diet to maintain strong teeth for their lifetime.

February is Children’s Dental Health Month, the best time to look into your family’s dental health habits.

FOODS TO INCLUDE IN YOUR FAMILY'S DIET:

Apples

Chewing apples and other crunchy, high-fiber fruits can scrub away plaque from teeth.

Water with Fluoride

Drinking water with fluoride is essential for the health of your child’s teeth as early as birth.

Eggs

Eggs are an excellent source of calcium, protein, and vitamin D, which are important minerals for oral health. Vitamin D builds and maintains strong, healthy teeth.

Milk, Cheese, and Yogurt

Milk, cheese, and yogurt are rich in calcium and phosphorus, which can protect tooth enamel.

Celery and Carrots

These vegetables contain a lot of fiber and water that balance the sugars and help clean teeth. Also, celery has fibrous strands, making this vegetable nature’s floss!

Broccoli and Green Leafy Vegetables

Leafy greens typically find their way onto any healthy foods list. They're full of vitamins and minerals while being low in calories.

Nuts and Seeds

Nuts and seeds also make a great, mouth-friendly snack! Almonds, peanuts and cashews, also help protect teeth.

NUTRITION TIPS

Avoid giving acidic food and drink between your child’s meals; there isn’t as much saliva in the mouth at these times to protect their teeth.




Taking good care of your teeth is not only important for oral health, but your health in general. Regular appointments, as well as visits to your child’s pediatric dentist, can help ensure your child stays on the road to health.
