Packing lunches. Love it or hate it, what you pack can definitely have an effect on your teeth. So when you reach for that snack bag of chips, consider popping one of these healthy snacks into your lunch bag instead.
Good Choices for Your Chompers
- Meat, Cheese & Nut – All of these easily packable items provide your body with the calcium and phosphorus it needs to help protect tooth enamel.
- Crunchy Fruits & Vegetables – These fresh favorites help promote the creation of saliva in your mouth, which helps flush out the particles and acids that can lead to tooth decay.
- Water is our favorite beverage of choice when it comes to a healthy choice for your teeth. Without any of the sugar you find in juices and soft drinks, it’s great for also rinsing the mouth of cavity-causing sources.
