National Children’s Dental Health Month

Little Bytes Pediatric Dentistry National Children’s Dental Health Month

Celebrate National Children’s Dental Health Month with a Sweet Smile!

Everyone knows that February means Valentine’s Day, but did you know that it’s also National Children’s Dental Health Month? While Valentine’s Day usually means spoiling your kiddos with gifts and treats, believe it or not, sugar does NOT love your children’s teeth! In fact, sugar has long been understood by pediatric dentists like Dr. Haghpanah as the number one cause of tooth decay! Consider celebrating Valentine’s Day AND National Children’s Dental Health Month with a few gifts that will keep on giving this February.

 

Buy New Toothbrushes

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends changing your toothbrush every 3 to 4 months, so why not spoil your little one’s teeth with some fresh bristles this Valentine’s Day? Consider buying fun brushes with your child’s favorite characters or colors, so your children and their teeth will thank you!

 

“I’m Nuts About You!” (Protein Packed) Treats

Rather than pushing sugary candies onto your child this Valentine’s Day, keep National Children’s Dental Health Month in mind and consider doling out some yummy AND nutritious snacks to celebrate! Peanuts are low in sugar and high in protein, making them the ultimate yummy Valentine’s Day gift.

 

Show Some Lunchtime Love

Valentine’s Day doesn’t have to be all about candy and treats. Instead, you can show your kiddos you love them by putting some extra time and thought into their lunches Valentine’s Day and every day! With a heart-shaped cutter from a standard kitchen-supply store, you can turn a turkey sandwich into a momento of your love! You can even make juicy melons or crunchy apples into delicious, red, dessert like snacks to amp up your Valentine’s Day gesture of love.
