So now that you’ve worked out how to take care of your children’s teeth, the question is; how do you encourage them to eat healthy foods that are good for their teeth? Of course some sweets are unavoidable; any parent who has had to do grocery shopping with children can probably confirm this. These are fine in moderation, but don’t forget to give their teeth a thorough clean afterwards.
What are some fun snacks that they can have that are healthy too? Here are a few of our ideas that we give to our children
Apples (sliced across so that they can eat around the star in the centre).
Fruit faces (any fruit you like, and let your kids help to create it).
Cucumber, carrot (cooked for the younger ones) and cheese sticks.
Cold hard-boiled egg
Home made yoghurt, (low sugar) ice creams on a stick.
Homemade muffins (low in sugar).
“Healthy Bread” cut into shapes and topped with cream cheese and carrot.
