Healthy eating leads to healthy teeth; teeth benefit from a well-balanced diet just like the rest of your body. The CDC recommends your child consume foods from all 5 food categories. For more information on a healthy diet visit the CDC’s website: www.cdc.gov.
Believe it or not, it is not only the quantity of sugar your child consumes but also the frequency with which they consume it. We know kids are growing and require frequent snacks to fuel their growing bodies. We recommend choosing nutritious snack foods such as vegetables, low-fat yogurt, and low-fat cheese to promote a healthy body as well as healthy teeth.
