Diet and Snacking

A healthy diet is a balanced diet that naturally supplies all the nutrients your child needs to grow.  A balanced diet is one that includes the following major food groups: fruits, vegetables, meat and beans, grains and dairy.  These are the key groups according to the food pyramid.  Your child must have a balanced diet for their teeth to develop properly. They also need a balanced diet for healthy gum tissue around the teeth.  Equally important, a diet high in certain kinds of carbohydrates, such as sugar and starches, may place your child at an increased risk for dental caries.
