Not all the food listed in this booklet has been tested and may cause decay. However, the knowledge so far suggests that they are less likely to promote foods with higher sugar content than those children often eat between meals.

Candy bar is not the only culprit. Foods such as pizza, bread and burger bread may also contain sugar. Check the label. The new food label labels sugars and fats on the nutrition panel on the package. Remember, brown sugar, honey, syrups and syrups also react with bacteria to produce acids, just like refined sugar. These foods can also hurt your teeth.

Your child’s meals and snacks should include a variety of foods from the basic food categories, including fruits and vegetables; cereals, including bread and cereals; milk and dairy products; and meat, nuts and seeds. Some snacks have greater nutritional value than others and will be better for your child’s growth and development. However, keep in mind that even some fresh fruits, if consumed in excess, may promote tooth decay. Children should brush their teeth with fluoride toothpaste after meals. (So ​​you should!)
