Make sure your child has a balanced diet, including one serving each of: fruits and vegetables, breads and cereals, milk and dairy products, and meat fish and eggs. Limiting the servings of sugars and starches will also aid in protecting your child’s teeth from decay. We also recommend that you limit sugary drinks, including 100% fruit juice as they have been shown to cause an increase in cavities in young children.  Your child should have three main meals, and typically no more than two snacks per day.  The best snack options for your child are fresh fruits, vegetables, cheese and yogurt.  We can help you develop a healthy and tooth friendly diet for your child based on their individual needs.
