20 Snacks to Pack for Healthy Teeth

Healthy Teeth

Everyone loves to snack, but not every snack is good for your teeth. And parents usually get chewed out when swapping their kids’ sugary sweets for healthy, wholesome snacks. So how can you urge your kids to choose the foods that family dentistry experts in Tampa say are good for their teeth? Follow these simple tips for finding healthy snacks that make everyone smile.

Just because you serve better snacks doesn’t mean that your kids will eat them. You need to get involved to get your kids on a healthier snack track. But with a little creativity and a whole lot of fun, you can serve up mid-day munchies that keep them healthy and happy.

One of the easiest ways to switch up their snacks is by making these foods fun to eat. Blend fruit into smoothies, top veggies with cheese, and turn yogurt into nut-topped sundaes. By serving wholesome foods in surprising ways, you’ll give healthy snacks a new look and new life.

Another way to improve kids’ snacks is to get them involved with your shopping for snacking. Talk to them about healthy foods and have them add their favorites to your grocery list. Then take your kids to the grocery store and teach them to read nutrition labels so they’re able to make their own healthy choices.

Finally, you need to practice what you preach and choose nutritious snacks for yourself. Kids learn from their parents’ example, so make sure to eat healthier foods and follow these snacks with good dental care.

So which snacks are the top to stock? Here’s a list of our favorite foods for keeping kids’ smiles in shape.
