Holidays are a time for snacking on sweet and sugary treats. Don’t let this holiday season harm your little ones smile. There are plenty of ways your children can enjoy the deliciousness of the holiday season while still keeping their little mouths healthy!
Below are a few tips on how to help your kids keep their teeth in tip top shape for their next checkup!
- When setting up your holiday appetizers, be sure to put out snacks such as whole grain crackers, cheese, fruit or raw vegetables for your kids to snack on before the big dinner.
- When making your child’s dinner plate up, try to fill it up with vegetables and salad before adding any extras. The more color on the plate, the better!
- Eating holiday sweet treats is OK in moderation. Let your child enjoy, but keep an eye out on how many cookies and other baked goods they’re consuming throughout the day.
- Try to encourage your child to drink water throughout the day instead of overindulging on soda or other sugary fruit juices that can be damaging to their teeth.
