Below, they share a few healthy summer snacks to maintain your child’s smile between visits.

3 Healthy Snacks That Will Contribute to Your Kids’ Dental Care

1. Fresh Fruit

kids dental careFruit contains tons of nutrients that contribute to healthy teeth and gums. Additionally, fibrous options like apples with the skin still on can actually remove plaque from between your teeth as you eat them. As far as sugar content goes, fresh fruit is better than dried fruit, but if dried fruit is more convenient for your family make sure everyone brushes their teeth after snack time.

2. Celery

Celery is a fibrous vegetable that serves as nature’s floss. If your kids don’t like it plain, serve it with their favorite salad dressing, or top it with peanut butter and raisins for “ants on a log.”

3. Cheese

There are more options than ever before when it comes to snack cheese. Whether your kids like string cheese or the miniature wheels that come in wax, you will have peace of mind knowing they get calcium in every bite to strengthen their teeth.

If it has been more than six months since your children’s last dentist appointment, summer is a great time to schedule a cleaning for them since they will be out of school. Turn to Alaska Dentistry for Kids in Anchorage for quality cleanings.
