Will you be spending time BBQing with your family this Labor Day? Here are a few tips to help you and your family stay healthy over the holiday weekend.
Labor Day Tooth Tips:
- Provide Choices – Give kids the option of choosing between fruit or a granola bar. This will help them feel involved and in control of picking a healthy food option.
- Limit Portion Sizes – Limit portion sizes, especially when sweets are involved. If you can, entice your kids with fruit instead!
- Stay Hydrated – Don’t forget to drink lots of water! Sometimes people crave sweets when they are dehydrated.
- Avoid Sticky Sweets and Sugary Beverages – Sticky foods are more likely to stick to teeth and lead to cavities. Sugary beverages also break down the tooth enamel and put your teeth at risk of decay.
