Here are some Buddies top tips to get you started:
Buddies Top tip: Let your toothpaste sink into the bristles of the brush so it’s not all removed in the first rinse, meaning your child gets the enamel protection of the fluoride it contains for the full 2 minute brush time.
Whether or not a child follows a healthy diet, will have a direct effect on their health, in particular, the health of their teeth. Therefore, it is important to teach your child from an early age which drinks and foods are good for their health and which are bad. Healthy foods are the ones that contain lots of vitamins and minerals which are essential for one’s body to be healthy and strong. This includes your teeth.
It is important that your child consumes enough calcium as this will help avoid painful tooth decay and gum disease. Be sure to give your child plenty of milk, cheese, yoghurt, greens, and beans. These are all rich in calcium.
Avoid giving your child the following drinks and food that contain high amounts of sugar: Sports drinks, fizzy drinks, wine gums, cakes, biscuits and sweets or candy and cereal bars. Remember that fizzy drinks, whether regular or diet wears off the teeth’s enamel which cause them to be susceptible to staining and being weak. Many foods are packaged to appear healthy but are actually full of sugar. Get into the habit of checking food labels.
Buddies Top Tip: Ingredient items are listed in order of quantity contained, so those near the top of the list are the main ingredients used
Note that some healthy but acidic food like apples can also erode enamel.
Buddies Top Tip: When your child has finished eating an apple or drinking fruit juice, get them to swish some water around their mouth to neutralise the effect of the acid. This is great for adults too!
