Health Tip: Snack Healthier for a Better Smile

Health Tip: Snack Healthier for a Better Smile

10/30/13

(HealthDay News) -- Eating foods with less added sugar can lead to a healthier smile, especially among children, the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics says.

The group offers this advice:

  • Limit how often you snack. The carbs in many foods may combine with mouth bacteria to damage teeth -- 20 minutes or more after you've finished eating.
  • Enjoy a well-balanced variety of healthy snacks, such as raw fruits and veggies, popcorn, low-fat cheese, plain yogurt and milk.
  • Avoid sugar-rich foods and beverages that take time to dissolve in your mouth, such as hard candies and sugary drinks.
  • After snacking, brush your teeth.
