back to school and teeth

As parents we can patrol our kids’ teeth when they’re at home with us. But at school, it’s a different story. We don’t have the opportunity to demand toothbrushing after a sugary drink or sticky something. With that in mind, and as they head back to school, try to avoid packing anything that will leave a layer of sugar on their teeth. The worst offenders? High sugar sports drinks, hard candy, non sugar free gum, and gummy fruit chews (the worst!).
