Planning a summer picnic soon? With 4th of July around the corner, the answer is probably yes! It’s important to choose foods good for your teeth at fun events like this so your smile stays healthy all year round. We’re recommending a few tasty picnic foods to protect your smile:
- A vegetable platter filled with celery, carrots, and other crunchy vegetables
- Leafy green salads like spinach or kale
- Any kind of cheese
- Fruit bowls
These foods all help keep your teeth clean and help produce saliva in your mouth to wash away bacteria. Make sure you also drink plenty of water too! We’re also sharing a video that talks a little bit about nutrition and dental health for more ideas.
