When it comes to your child’s diet, you limit sugary treats like soda and candy. And that’s great! Unfortunately, their smile can suffer if they consume foods that seem healthy on the surface – but contain lots of sugar.
This video compares some common breakfast foods from the grocery and restaurants to a glazed doughnut. There are certainly some surprises! For instance, oatmeal from McDonald’s has twice as much sugar as the doughnut.
The video offers some alternative suggestions with less sugar. We’re also happy to suggest some nutritious options for meals and snacks at your child’s exams.
Daily brushing and flossing will help lessen the effects of sugar on your child’s teeth. Regular cleanings at our office remove cavity-causing bacteria from spots they miss at home. They may also benefit from fluoride treatments for added anti-cavity protection.
