Tasty Tips and Tricks to Feed Kids Tooth-Friendly Foods

A healthy diet is certainly good for your child’s body, but it’s also great for their teeth. To protect your child’s dental health, follow these simple steps to feed kids tooth-friendly foods.

Keep the Kitchen Filled with Healthy Foods

If you only have healthy foods in the house, then your kids will be more likely to eat them. No wonder pediatric dental care experts say that healthy smiles begin in the kitchen. Instead of serving sugary snacks, give kids fresh-cut veggies, fruit, cheese, yogurt, lean protein, whole grains, and nuts. For more ideas on adding healthy foods into meals and snacks, ask your pediatric dentist.

Pour Better Beverages

While you may strive to feed kids tooth-friendly foods, don’t overlook the importance of healthy drinks. Many kids love sugary juices and carbonated sodas, but these are full of sugars and acids that cause tooth decay and lead to more trips to a pediatric dentist. It’s much better to serve your child plain water or milk. Of course, your child can occasionally have sugary and acidic drinks, but pediatric dental care experts say you should make sure they rinse their mouth with water to wash away sugars and acids.

Attack Snacking

Each time your child eats, it feeds the bacteria in their mouth and increases their risk of tooth decay. By reducing your child’s snacking, you can reduce their risk of decay and their trips to the kid’s dentist. While there’s nothing wrong with a sweet treat now and then, try to make it part of a meal instead of just another snack to lessen their chance of decay.

Cook Up Good Dental Care Habits

A healthy smile demands both good eating habits and proper dental care. You can help your child develop good oral hygiene habits by having them follow these four simple steps:

  • Brush teeth at least twice a day.
  • Floss once a day or more.
  • Rinse mouth with water after having sugary or acidic foods and drinks.
  • Visit a kid’s dentist for regular check-ups and cleanings.
