Healthy Snacks for a Healthy Mouth

Healthy Snacks for a Healthy Mouth

Sometimes eating between meals must happen. It is recommended to limit eating and drinking sugary drinks between meals. Most people choose foods like sweets and chips for snacks. These choices can weaken the teeth and cause cavities. Also, nutritious, acidic foods like tomatoes and citrus fruits can have acidic effects on tooth enamel. Try to eat them as part of a meal, and not as a stand-alone snack.

Here are some nutritious snack choices:

  • Cheese
  • Yogurt
  • Fruits
  • Vegetables
  • Nuts

Incorporate healthy foods into snack options for all your summer activities and gatherings. Savory choices may include cheese, vegetables, meats, and creative summer salads. Sweet options may include fruit parfaits made with Greek yogurt, dates, or homemade popsicles. Consuming healthy snacks will keep you from indulging in too many unwanted temptations. Involve children in the preparation of the healthy options, as this will likely get them excited about nutritious food choices and keep their little hands busy.
