3 Ways Your Child's Diet Affects Their Oral Health
#1 Sugar Is Best When It's Fresh from Nature
Kids love a sweet treat, but their taste buds become desensitized to the natural sweetness of fruit if they eat too much processed sugar. If you have ever given up sugar for any length of time, you know that blueberries taste sweeter than ever and a strawberry tastes like dessert.
Fruit also provides nutritional value such as vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and fiber. When eaten whole, in their non-processed form (as opposed to applesauce or
fruit rolls), fruit is not particularly harmful to teeth as long as you have a good home care routine that includes brushing, flossing, and using a fluoride toothpaste.
