The first day of fall is finally here! We’re all ready to embrace apple picking, pumpkin everything, warm soups and all of our other favorite fall foods. Fortunately, not all snacks have to be bad for your teeth! Kick the season off the right way with these tooth friendly fall recipes.
Tooth Friendly Fall Foods:
Hummus is delicious any time of year, but why not make it festive by adding pumpkin puree! Pumpkin hummus is the perfect appetizer to serve at your next game day party or fall picnic.
Apples are one of the best foods for your teeth. They’re naturally abrasive, brushing other food particles off of your teeth as you eat them! Have a festival apple-raisin salad that will satisfy your sweet cravings without the extra sugar.
Broccoli Cheese Soup
Cooler weather means one thing — it’s soup season! And although this soup may be on the calorie-heavy ide, it is also packed with vitamins K and C that are great for your teeth and gums.
Combine your two fall favorites — pumpkin flavors and warm soup. This is the perfect way to fill up and stay warm. With no added sugar and plenty of vitamins A and C, you can help keep your gums healthy.
