Tooth-Friendly School Lunches
Although we may not want to admit it, back-to-school season is here! That means busy mornings for parents looking to get their kids up, ready and out the door for the first day of school.
We know it can be tough to get back into the swing of things. Fortunately, there are quick, easy, and tooth-friendly lunches that you can pack — without missing the bus.
Tooth-Friendly School Lunch Ideas:
- Drink Plenty of Water – Instead of sipping on sugary juices and sodas, pack your child a reusable water bottle instead. This will help them keep their teeth healthy throughout the day (while also staying hydrated).
- Snack on Fruits – Add a fruit to your child’s lunch bag. An apple or a pear that requires a lot of chewing will help keep their teeth healthy. This is a simple snack and a healthy addition to any school lunch.
- Low-Fat Yogurt – Yogurt is full of vitamin and minerals that keep teeth strong. Just make sure that you are choosing a low-fat, low-sugar option. Many kid-friendly yogurts are packed with extra sugars.
- String Cheese – Like yogurt, string cheese a calcium-rich snack that is great for growing strong teeth and bones.
