• Your child should eat foods from these four food groups: fruits and vegetables, bread and
cereal, meat and protein, and milk and dairy (cheese is especially good for teeth. It
is high in calcium which helps neutralize acids in the mouth).
• Give your child healthy snacks including raw vegetables, fruits, nuts and cheese. Avoid
giving your child raisins and other dried fruits that stick to their teeth, sticky
sweets like caramel candy, cookies and granola bars made with honey or molasses.
• For drinks, give milk or unsweetened fruit juice, not soda
