Limit Sugar For Healthier Timonium Kids

Family Dentist Timonium

Every health-conscious parent knows that sugar is the number one cause of cavities for kids–and plenty of us adults also snack on too many sweet snacks and beverages.

Because of cavity risks, low nutritional value, and high calorie content, many parents want to limit the sugar in their children’s diets. Obviously, there is a lot of sugar in bubble gum, lollipops, and gummy candy. But there is also sugar lurking in so-called ‘healthy’ snacks.

Here are some popular snacks with significant amounts of sugar:

yogurt covered raisins
fruit snacks including the roll-up and syrup-filled varieties
rice cakes
many brands of yogurt including the hand-held type
juice drinks
flavored milk
barbecue sauce
fruit smoothies
cereal bars

Controlling sugar intake in your child’s diet is essential for lifelong oral health. When choosing lunchbox or after-school snacks at your local farmer’s market, convenience store or recreation center snack bar, read the labels. Sugar content varies among brands.

Sugar consumption is only one diet issue impacting children’s oral health. If your child’s diet lacks key vitamins and minerals, the tissues in their mouth may have trouble fighting infection. These infections can lead to gum disease.
