As a parent, you likely already know that sweets and sugary drinks like soda are very unhealthy for your child’s teeth. However, many parents are not aware that other, seemingly healthy drinks and snacks can be equally damaging to your child’s smile.
Fruit snacks and fruit juice are “repeat offenders” when it comes to tooth decay and should be avoided. If you are looking for a healthy on-the-go snack and drink for your child, consider a cheese stick and bottled water. Kids also love learning that some of their favorite foods (like pizza) are great for their smile!
