Delicious Snacks That Won’t Harm Your Children’s Teeth

Delicious Snacks That Won't Harm Your Children's Teeth

Try as you might to push your kids to eat their fruits and vegetables, it can seem like there's no stopping them when they have candy, cookies or cake on the brain. And while these desserts and snacks are certainly delicious, they can have a negative impact on the strength, health and appearance of their pearly whites.

As a parent, what can you do to help your children protect their teeth without getting into a fight about junk food every time? Well, you might want to consider offering them some delicious alternatives that won't be as disastrous to their oral hygiene efforts. Here are a few snacks to keep in mind that are more beneficial than regular candy or chocolate.

Applesauce
Is there any kid out there who doesn't love a chilled cup of applesauce as an after-school snack? And with autumn now in gear, this is the perfect treat to offer kids after a day spent at the orchard or playing with leaves in the yard. Packed with vitamins and other important nutrients, applesauce is a great way to hold your little ones over until dinner.

Granola bars
One of the best foods to grab when you're on the run, giving your children a nutritious granola bar before sending them off to school or extracurricular activities can provide them with a snack that's rich in nutrients. While certain varieties of granola bars are closer to chocolate bars than you might think – which is why it's important to check the nutritional information – many are low in calories and fat while offering flavors like peanut butter or berry.

Fruit and yogurt
Calcium is important for building strong bones and teeth, and you can make sure your kids get plenty of this mineral by eating delicious cups of yogurt! And for added nutritional value, mixing in fruits like blueberries, strawberries or raspberries will provide vitamins as well as beneficial antioxidants.
