Five teeth friendly foods for your child Newington, CT


It is important for children to maintain adequate oral health from a young age. Parents should make sure that their young ones brush and floss their teeth regularly. Nutrition is the key to good oral health as well, and it is extremely important for parents to make sure that their kids eat food that promote good oral health and prevent occurrence of cavities.

Many people believe sticky foods like toffees and sweets cause cavities, and it is true. Majority of the population is unaware that bacteria not only utilize most of the  sugar in sweets, but also any foods that contain indirectly added sugar such as popcorn, muesli bars, snack bars, dried fruit, crackers, biscuits, potato chips and peanut butter. 

Healthy nutrition for a child’s teeth:

  • Lean-protein foods like legumes, peas, beans, eggs, skinless fish and poultry are good for a child’s teeth. These foods promote healthy tooth structure, improve immune function and help in developing connective tissues.
  • Calcium-rich foods like yogurt, broccoli and milk build healthy tooth structure and increase the enamel re-mineralization.
  • Dairy products like Cheddar , mozzarella and Swiss cheese facilitate saliva production. They also wash away debris in mouth and neutralize the damaging acids.

Fruits and vegetables:

Fruits and vegetables like cucumbers, celery, melon and pears contain high amounts of water that cleanse the teeth.

Plain drinking water:

Give your child plain water and not too much of fizzy drink or juice. Plain water does not harm teeth and removes food particles that are prone to cling on to the teeth.
