Huntersville Dentist | Healthy Lunch Ideas for Both Children and Adults

Dentist in Huntersville, NC

Dentist in Huntersville NCSeptember is Childhood Obesity Awareness Month. It is also a time when our schedules become busy with school, after-school activities, work and social gatherings. When short on time it can be tempting to buy convenient lunch foods, which at times lack nutritional value. We’ve put together a list of healthy lunch and snack foods to promote oral and overall health of our community.

Apples & Pears
Firm, crunchy fruits are high in water content. This dilutes the effects of the sugar they contain and help to stimulate saliva production, making them excellent for oral health.

Water & Milk
Water and milk are far better choices than sugary juices and sports drinks, which contribute to decay. If you choose to allow sugary drinks, save them for an after school snack and encourage brushing after consumption.

Cheeses & Nuts
The calcium and phosphorus found in these foods help to re-mineralize teeth by strengthening the tooth’s enamel.

Carrots & Broccoli
Replace a bag of chips with colorful vegetables and a low-fat dip. This will encourage your children to make a habit of snacking healthy and help them to get the vital vitamins and nutrients needed for oral and overall health.

Childhood obesity and childhood caries are of the most common ailments effecting American children today. Help your children by making healthy food available every day.

We welcome both children and adults of all ages to our dental practice. Don’t forget to make brushing and flossing an important part of your child’s routine, as well as regular visits to our dental office.

Dr. Tate Langdon and his staff are absolutely remarkable. Melinda and Lauren at the front desk always give a warm welcome right when you walk in the door. These ladies also, leave kind voicemails to remind you of your appointments. My hygienist Lauren is so attentive and helpful. Lauren always answers my questions and makes my teeth sparkle. Dr. Langdon is gentle, thorough, and will lead you in the right direction for dental care needs with integrity.
