KEEPING KIDS LUNCH BOXES HEALTHY
Life is hectic and so packing and preparing healthy lunch boxes for the kids can sometimes seem impossible.
Packing a water bottle in your childs lunchbox is essential. It not only keeps their body hydrated but also their teeth. The fluoride helps strengthen their teeth, wash away excess acids after eating and fights dry mouth. Avoid buying cordials, soft drinks and fruit juices.
CELERY, CARROT AND APPLE;
These are perfect snacks for the lunch box. They act like a toothbrush to their teeth. The high vitamin A and C is also beneficial.
YOGHURT, MILK AND CHEESE
The protein and calcium in diary will strengthen their enamel and neutralises acids in the mouth. It’s as easy as adding a slice of cheese to their sandwich or a small yohurt.
Cashews, cherry tomatoes and leafy vegetables are some other good foods for their tooth friendly lunch boxes.
