Diet & Nutrition

Teeth are a living part of the body, and they need vitamins and minerals to grow strong and healthy. We feel that all children should eat a healthy diet. It’s not only good for their teeth, but also good for their bodies and minds. When it’s time to eat, explore all that’s out there. Mix it up with fruits and vegetables, cereals, dairy products, and meats.

As for snacks, keep them to a minimum and keep them healthy. More snacking means more chances for sugar to stick to the teeth. Stay away from sugary snacks and drinks (including soda and juice), and encourage your child to eat fruits and vegetables, meats and cheeses, yogurt, ice cream, chocolate, popcorn, and nuts and peanut butter if they are not allergic.

No matter what you eat or when you eat it, be sure to brush afterwards.
