Exploring Different Dentist Approved Game Day Snacks

Posted on

Game day in your home can be a time everyone likes to sit back and munch on some yummy treats. You as the host or hostess should look out for your family and any guests you have dropping by for some fun. Set the table with some healthy choices that will satisfy even the choosiest eaters.

Remember the best way to keep healthier teeth is to neutralize the bacteria in your mouth that can cause cavities. Raw fruits and vegetables are much healthier than a bowl of chips or crackers. With that in mind, here are a few more healthy ideas.

Create a Fruit Platter: You can provide the game crowd with a tray full of tasty fruits such as apples. They are a good choice since the chewing will produce saliva which can decrease the acid particles within your mouth. Oranges, kiwi, and strawberries are excellent sources of vitamin C, which produce collagen to fight gum/periodontal disease. Collagen helps the gums to become stronger.

Cheese on The Side: What party is complete without some raw (unpasteurized) cheese? Probiotics may also aid in reducing plaque to promote healthier gums. You should also discover you have sweeter breath because the probiotics help destroy candida.

Guacamole Delight: Avocados are the main ingredient in guacamole with its benefits of vitamin E and Folate (Foliate). The majority of fat content is unsaturated fat which is beneficial for lowering blood pressure. Vitamin E supports your immune functions, further making this an excellent choice. After you have prepared this yummy dish, all you need to do is add a tray of fresh veggies to the mix using carrots, celery, or cucumbers and you have a party snack.

How about Deviled Eggs? Even though vitamin D isn't crunchy, it is present in egg yolks and can be used in the form of deviled eggs. What party is complete without at least one deviled egg? Vitamin D helps to absorb calcium which is helpful for keeping your teeth healthy.

Each of these yummy treats can help you keep your teeth and gums healthy. However, it is advised by the Mayo Clinic that you should brush before you consume acidic foods and thirty minutes after eating. The acid causes the enamel in your teeth to become weakened, and brushing too quickly can cause serious damage.

You don't have to go on a strict diet to enjoy good food and company. Now that you have some yummy healthy treats; it's time to enjoy game day. For more information on tooth healthy treats, contact professionals like Milner Dentistry.
