With school back in session, school lunches are too! Remember a healthy diet can contribute to a healthy smile, in addition to a good oral hygiene routine and regular visits to the dentist too.
A well-balanced and nutritious lunch is what your child needs. Some prepackaged snacks may seem simple and easy, but they are often filled with sugar and chemicals. At ToothMatters Dental Clinic, we recommend adding in foods with nutrients such as veggies and fruits. Some go-to ideas can include carrot or celery sticks, blueberries or strawberries. You can also cut up lunch into fun shapes to get your child excited about a healthy lunch.
