Pick and Pack These Teeth-Friendly Snacks

Healthy Teeth

Kids love to snack on sweets and treats, but parents don’t love what these do to their teeth. If you’d like your children to start liking snacks that don’t lead to plaque, follow these easy tips and tricks from family dentistry professionals in Orlando to get your kids to crave healthier snacks.

One of the easiest ways to change your kids’ snacking habits is to make healthy foods fun to eat. With some creativity, you can give your kids treats that will get them on a healthier snack track and keep them happy. You can turn yogurt into nut-topped sundaes, top veggies with cheese, and blend fruit into smoothies. If you serve your kids these foods in surprising ways, healthy snacks will be a fun experience and help them maintain proper dental care.

Talk to your kids about the benefits of healthy foods and encourage them to add their favorites to your grocery list. If you take them to the grocery store and teach them how to read nutritional labels, they’ll soon be able to make their own healthy choices.

Since kids learn from their parents’ example, make sure you eat healthier foods, too. Then follow these healthy snacks with the proper dental care.

Here are our top-20 teeth-healthy foods:

  1. Carrots
  2. Celery
  3. Cucumbers
  4. Broccoli
  5. Pears
  6. Melons
  7. Berries
  8. Oranges
  9. Pineapple
  10. Low-fat or Non-fat Yogurt
  11. Low-fat or Non-fat Cheese
  12. Unsalted Pretzels
  13. Unsweetened Cereal
  14. Whole-Grain Bread
  15. Plain Bagels
  16. Unsalted Nuts
  17. Unsalted Sunflower Seeds
  18. Unsalted Pumpkin Seeds
  19. Peanut Butter
  20. Baked Chicken or Turkey

As long as sweet snacks are just occasional treats, kids can still eat them without harming their teeth. If most snacks are healthy and their dental care is good, then kids can enjoy all kinds of foods and still keep their teeth healthy.
