Keeping my family’s teeth healthy (and white) is something that’s very important to me. Growing up, my mother was always conscious of making sure the food we put in our bodies would keep not only our bodies healthy but our teeth. Creating healthy teeth habits early on helps because you’ll stick with them as you grow. It’s wonderful to have “tooth success” at a young age because your older teeth will thank you for it! You don’t want your children to get cavities, and you want to set them up to have their dental visits always be successful!
What kinds of foods and recipes can you make at home to aid in healthy teeth?
It’s all about incorporating foods into your family’s lives that are healthy and not filled with artificial flavorings, sugars and dyes. If you’re eating sugary and unhealthy foods regularly, your teeth are going to pay the price. Believe me, it’s OK to have a cookie or a piece of candy here and there — my kids love their treats. But to have these kinds of foods every single day and always at the ready in your house isn’t the best way to be and stay healthy.
Again, for me it’s all about healthy bodies, which includes teeth! I really try to make and serve foods that are healthy on every level. Just like you encourage your kids to brush every morning and night to keep their teeth clean, it’s important to make sure the food they're consuming is good, too. ProNamel® 6-12 Years Toothpaste for Kids is all about actively strengthening the precious enamel kids have now. The company's kids line is focused on kids age 6-12, who are in the stage of losing their primary teeth and growing in their secondary ones. This is the period when the enamel is softer on the secondary teeth, as it takes time for enamel to harden as these grow in. This is a very susceptible time for kids to experience Acid Erosion of their enamel — and once it erodes it never grows back. Therefore, it’s truly necessary to do what you can to make sure their teeth are healthy!
