Be Savvy about Food Choices

Encouraging a vibrant and nourishing diet at home not only boosts your child’s focus and engagement in school but also plays a pivotal role in preserving their dental well-being. By selecting wholesome foods and cultivating positive eating habits play a crucial role in maintaining your child’s oral wellbeing.

Adopting Healthy Habits:

  • When plating meals at home, consider following the ‘Harvard Healthy Eating Plate’ guidelines.
  • Include a variety of colourful fruits and vegetables in your child’s diet.
  • Opt for healthy protein sources such as fish, poultry, nuts, and beans.
  • Consume dairy products in moderation.
  • Promote water drinking.
  • Limit the intake of sugary drinks and acidic juices, as they can be harmful to teeth.
  • Steer clear of sweets, biscuits, and cakes to prevent tooth decay and potential health issues.
