Combat Tooth Decay In Children With These Easy Steps

Tooth decay is something we all need to watch out for. Unfortunately, it’s on the rise in children and this is something we need to prevent. We need to encourage good oral health care habits from a young age.

Dentists are wanting schools to look at children’s sugar consumption and cut it in school meals.

Combat Tooth Decay In Children With These Easy Steps

Here are some easy steps from DenTek to help combat tooth decay in children.

How To Combat Tooth Decay

  • Supervise brushing– This needs to be done until the age of 7 to ensure brushing is done adequately.
  • Brush twice a day – for at least 2 minutes
  • Floss – As soon as children get two teeth that touch they can floss. These kids fun flossers from DenTek are perfect! Available at Boots.
  • Visit the Dentist – It’s advised that children visit the dentist twice a year as a minimum.
  • Reduce sugar consumption – Sugar harms teeth, plain and simple. So reducing the intake of sugar will help tooth decay.

  1. l bake a lot of oat flapjacks using honey instead of syrup for sweeteners also making your own biscuits or cookies with stevia keeps the sugar content down and they are always loved by the family

  2. I find that savoury works best to fill me up! Boiled eggs are a great snack. Sounds gross to some but once you get into eating them, they are delicious!

  3. My daughters have really taken a liking to have nuts as snacks. which is a lot better than sugary yogurts, and chocolate bars.

    1. I’ve just made my son courgette and cheese muffins, sugar free and banana and oat pancakes as natural sugar just from banana

  4. I always have some veggie sticks and grapes ready in the fridge for my grandchildren whenever they need a snack. I’m quite partial to them as well

  5. Leo loves cubes of cheese with slices of apple. His preschool have obviously been doing something about looking after your teeth because the other day he told me that it wasn’t good to have ‘caberties’ on your teeth. it made me laugh!

  6. Supermarkets are getting much better at stocking sugar-free foods. We buy crackers and biscuits from the ‘Free From’ section in our local stores and we also have plain nuts available at home for family snacks at all times.

  7. You have to watch fruit as they have sugars too so we mix it up with fruit, crackers, hummus with carrot sticks are a favourite for us all too!

    1. I’m really lucky as all 3 of my kids like savoury snacks, especially things like cheese, cucumber, carrots, raisins etc. They still enjoy their fruit and treats but they just have them in moderation

    1. I always eat dried fruit like prunes because although it does contain sugar, it is all natural and takes the sweet cravings away.
