Diet and Tooth Decay
Tooth Decay is a disease that begins when a sticky film of bacteria, called plaque, constantly forms on teeth. After a meal, the bacteria use the sugar from food and they produce acid that attacks and weakens tooth enamel.
Frequent snacking can increase the risk of tooth decay because it increases the number of acid attacks on tooth enamel. If the child needs a snack, choose nutritious foods like fruits, cheese, sandwiches, and yogurt. Make smart choices for your children's snacks.
