Help Your Kids Choose Healthy Snacks for Their Dental Health

February 28, 2016

Filed under: Children's Dentistry,Health — atriumfamily @ 10:37 pm

We need to promote healthy snacks for good dental health to our kids.  As a parent, it’s hard to have healthy snacks on hand that your kids will actually eat.  Usually they want a bag of chips or cookies that we all know are in the pantry.  They are easy to grab, so for busy moms and dads, it’s easy on us.  We don’t have to do any prep work, and the kids can go on their merry way.

This week, why not try something new?  Cut up 10 carrots.  I know, peeling and chopping…but only do it once for the week.  Put the carrot sticks in the fridge, in a food storage bag.  When the kids want a snack, offer those. Not a fan of carrots?  Try grabbing a bag of clementines at the grocery.  Small, easy enough for a youngster to peel on their own. Or, a bag of pretzels offered with small individual cups of peanut butter can be a winner.  Change up your snacking this week, and help your kids learn about the importance of keeping those chompers healthy!
