If you are anything like us, then you like to snack throughout the day. Eating little and often is recommended to keep you healthy, provided you eat the right foods. Munching on snacks between brushings is not an issue you pick the right kind.
The healthiest snacks for you to munch on between brushings are carrots and celery. Celery contains fiber, which works like flossing when you chew it up; it will also help fight against gum disease. Carrots are great at fighting cavities. When chewing on them, it is like you are brushing your teeth because of the crunch. Carrots are high in keratin, which naturally fights plaque, and vitamin A, which is essential in strengthening tooth enamel. Cashew nuts are also a healthy snack to munch on in between brushings. They help maintain healthy teeth and gums. Chewing any abrasive snacks will help to naturally clean between teeth and massage your gums. Yogurt is another snack that is good for your teeth. The high calcium content strengthens your teeth.
