Back to School Snacks

It's that time of year again! Summer has come and gone in the blink of an eye. Your children are ready to take on the new school year, but are their smiles ready? 

Have the kids been in recently for their dental exams and hygiene care? Let's keep this healthy gum and teeth train rolling, by packing dental friendly snacks! Unsure what to pack? 

Here are some dental friendly snack ideas (allergies permitting):

  • Hummus and Pita Bread
  • Cheese cubes or slices
  • Low fat yogurt with berries
  • Crunchy veggies and dip
  • Sliced fruit such as watermelon or apples

Don't forget to promote lots of water! Even one cup of juice can contain more sugar than our recommended daily intake. Enhance the flavour of water with fresh fruit slices, or herbs. Try keeping a spare toothbrush and paste in school lockers or lunch bags. Rinsing in between meals with water also help disrupt the baceteria that develops while eating, if your children do not have access to brush at school. 

For any questions or help with your child’s dental needs between check-ups, don’t hesitate to call us at 705-734-2242
