7 ways to reduce sugar in your kids' diets
Your dentist may have warned you about the worrying figures of tooth decay among kids. In Singapore alone, a whopping 50% of pre-schoolers have tooth decay! In order to prevent tooth decay, by the time your child is one year old, take your child to see a pediatric dentist and start using fluoridated toothpaste. Another habit to kick is letting your child fall asleep with a bottle containing formula milk or juice. When sugar interacts with the bacteria in your teeth, it produces an acid that slowly dissolves tooth enamel.
Here are some tips to reduce sugar in your kids' diets, helping not just their dental health but also their overall health. If your kids are still having sugar cravings, substitute the usual desserts with some low-sugar treats instead.
