Eat Up These Teeth-Friendly Snacks

Healthy Teeth

Kids usually crave snacks that are packed with sugar and salt, so how can you get your kids to pack the snacks that are healthy and wholesome? It may seem hard to swallow, but there are easy ways to get your kids choosing snacks that are good for their teeth. Check out these helpful tips from family dentistry experts in Temple Terrace for making snacking a healthier habit.

Making these foods fun to eat is one of the easiest ways to change your kids’ snacks. You can mix fruit into smoothies, turn yogurt into nut-topped sundaes, and top vegetables with cheese. If you serve healthy foods in unexpected ways, wholesome snacks will take on a new look and help to improve your kids’ oral health and dental care.

Get your kids involved with shopping for their snacks. Talk to them about the benefits of healthy foods and encourage them to add their favorites to your grocery list. If you take your kids to the supermarket and show them how to read nutritional labels, they’ll be able to make their own healthy choices.

And don’t forget that kids learn from their parents’ example, so practice what you preach and make sure you eat healthier foods, too, following these wholesome snacks with a good dental care routine.

Here’s a list of our top-20 favorite foods for keeping kids’ dental care in shape.
