Packing Tooth-healthy Lunches
As summer draws to a close, most parents are getting in back-to-school mode. In the rush of preparation, take a moment to think about what your child will eat during weekdays. With a little planning, you can provide tasty lunches and snacks that contribute to a lifetime of dental health.

Cavity culprits
Tooth decay remains the number one childhood dental concern. Sugar and acids are villains that attack healthy tooth enamel, and they can hide in unexpected places. Fresh produce is great for overall health, but kid favorites like grapes and cherries are loaded with sugar. Substitute lower-sugar strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, or avocados. Encourage plenty of fresh, plain water and limit acidic sports drinks and high-sugar juices.

Seven superheroes
Use this list of dental-friendly foods from the American Dental Association to plan lunches and snacks: Almonds
  • Apples
  • Carrots
  • Celery
  • Cheese
  • Leafy greens
  • Yogurt
With busy schedules, there is temptation to reach for packaged foods. Try purchasing, preparing, and storing healthy foods in single serving containers once or twice a week, for convenience. Small changes in daily eating can pack big benefits for your child’s oral wellness.

Preparing For A Lifetime Of Smiles
Childhood oral health is a team effort, including your family and our pediatric dental team. As a child grows, he or she begins to take responsibility for good habits, and eventually for coordination of dental care. However, for the first few years you are the primary protector of your child’s oral health.
