Smart foods for healthy teeth

Candies, cakes. Cookies and many other sugary foods is usually children’s loves to eat and this will result in damaging their teeth. And also sugary foods have so many fats. The invisible germs that is called bacteria is going to stay in the mouth and mostly it forms as sticky material or plague in the surface of the teeth. Sugary foods were good but we have to know that this is not good also for our health. The damaging acids from every time we eat snacks that is abundant of sugar, and it will continue to damage our teeth.

Every time we eat sugary foods be sure that we clean or brush our teeth after eating using fluoride toothpaste.

Low fat choices such as raw vegetables, fresh fruits or wholegrain crackers or bread are good choices. This is to get rid tooth decay and other health problems.

Here are some fresh fruits and raw vegetables: berries, oranges, grapefruit, melons, pineapple, pears, tangerines, broccoli, celery, carrots, cucumber, tomatoes, unsweetened fruits and vegetables juices, canned fruits in natural juices. Always remember avoid eating sugary foods between meals, eat different kinds of raw or non-fat food from basic groups, and always remind the kids to brush their teeth after meals.
