Summer Snack Tips
Naturally sweet treats: Keep a supply of fresh fruit handy for summer snacking. Crispy fruits like apples and Bosc pears actually provide a little scrubbing action for the teeth with their vitamins. Softer fruits such as bananas, berries, and watermelon provide natural sweetness along with vitamins and minerals. Yogurt has valuable calcium for strong teeth and the vitamin D our bodies need to use that calcium. Add some fresh fruit to Greek yogurt for added flavor and sweetness – and even more vitamins.
Savory snacks: Cheese is a calcium-rich snack. Crunchy carrots and celery help scrub teeth while providing vitamins and minerals. Do a little mixing and matching by adding some cream cheese to that celery for extra flavor. Serve up hummus and pita chips or cheese with whole-grain crackers. They’re great nutritious alternatives to chips and dip.
Freezer favorites: Ice cream and popsicles are a favorite summer treat, but they’ve got quite a sugar punch. Many homemade frozen yogurt recipes are available online, combining frozen fruit, yogurt, and honey for your own summer celebration without adding large amounts of sugar.
Or choose to stock your freezer shelves with store-bought or homemade low-sugar fruit pops.
Schedule A Back-To-School Dental Appointment
It’s best to see a dentist during the summer if you can, before back-to-school. It’s easier to make time to see Dr. Abarca for pediatric care during the summer, since you won’t have to worry about your child missing school.
Join Our Happy Family Our main goals at Little Champions Pediatric Dentistry are preventing cavities, teaching children how to brush and floss properly, and helping them develop healthy habits. Developing healthy habits is key—this means no thumb sucking or pacifier use after age three, eating nutritious foods, and visiting us at least twice a year.
What is a Board Certified Pediatric Dentist? Did you know? As a thorough and voluntary process for dentists, pediatric board certification involves exams, additional education, and an annual renewal. Earning a board certification symbolizes a dentist’s dedication to excellence and their sincere commitment to the growing patients in their community.
