Tooth tips

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.
