Keeping your baby’s teeth healthy and shiny is easy if you start with proper brushing habits when your baby is a newborn. Another way to promote a healthy, shiny smile is with the right foods once your little one starts solids. Many foods go above healthy and actually promote healthy teeth and fight tooth decay. Fresh fruits and veggies: Veggies contain vitamin A which promotes healthy gums and teeth and vitamin C is vital for the production of collagen which helps ensure that body tissues are more immune to bacterial penetration. One excellent way to give your baby vitamin C is with kiwi. One large kiwi can supply your baby with 100% of the daily vitamin C she needs. Yogurt and milk: Protein and vitamin D both promote growth of healthy teeth and when your baby gets enough these nutrients help maintain healthy and strong tooth enamel. Cheese: Like milk, cheese has plenty of calcium but cheese has an added benefit - phosphorus. Cheese stimulates saliva that neutralizes and attacks bacteria build up on teeth. It also helps to add minerals to your baby’s teeth thus fighting decay. Chocolate!: The cocoa butter found in chocolate forms a film on your teeth preventing plaque. Of course, keep in mind that chocolate, like any food with added sugar can result in tooth decay. So be sure your toddler always brushes up after a chocolate treat; but it may be a better choice than say, sticky fruit candy or caramel.
