Posted on 9/5/2022 by Fariba Mutschler
Top 4 Snacks to Feed Kids for Healthier TeethIt takes more than a good dental hygiene routine to keep your kid's teeth healthy. Apart from encouraging kids to brush and floss regularly, you should also ensure that they eat healthy foods that provide all the essential nutrients. This helps keep their teeth stronger and healthier. Snacks are some of the foods that can keep your kid's teeth healthy. The top four snacks rich in essential nutrients include fresh Waterlemon, ants on a log, yogurt and berries, cheddar, and apple slices.

Fresh Watermelon

People who eat fresh fruits on a regular basis have lower chances of developing dental cavities. Fresh watermelon is one of the best fruits for the teeth because it has low acid and sugar levels. You should encourage your kids to eat fresh watermelons because they help keep their teeth strong.

Ants on a Log

This is a popular children's snack that consists of celery stalk topped with raisins and filled with peanut butter. You should go for peanut butter without added sugar to make this snack more healthy. This snack provides essential nutrients like calcium, which is ideal for strong and healthy teeth.

Yoghurt and Berries

Berries and yogurt make an excellent dessert for children. With a sweet taste and a creamy texture, your kid will be craving this snack. However, you should use plain yogurt without added sugar to make the snack more healthy. You can serve it with raspberries, strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, or a mixture of all of them to increase the nutrients.

Cheddar and Apple Slices

Cheese is rich in calcium, a nutrient needed for healthy and strong teeth. Cheddar's sharp flavor is also an ideal complement to sweet apples. This goes a long way in keeping your child's teeth healthy. Remember not to use sweetened additives that could cause oral conditions like tooth decay and gum disease.

My daughter was a little nervous to have her dental work done but everyone in the office was super friendly and very reassuring and that helped her nervousness go away. Thanks for the excellent dental experience. ~ Lilyana G.
