nutrition and caries
If breast milk is not so sweet,
why encourage them to like
refined sugar when they are still so young?
A balanced diet is critical
not only to avoid diseases
the mouth but also for
the general health of both
the mother and the baby.
Our advice on nutrition for your child to have an optimal oral health is:
Ideal: breastfeeding up to the sixth month.
Do not offer refined sugars (sweets, chewy candy, cookies, croissants, sweet bread, chocolate, ice cream, etc.).
Avoid nocturnal feeding (baby bottle or breast milk) when the first tooth erupts or perform oral hygiene after nocturnal feeding.
- Avoid giving your baby bottles with anything but water.
- Never wet the pacifier with sweets (honey, sugar, etc.).
- Avoid the consumption of cariogenic foods (with sucrose) between meals. If you don't, perform oral hygiene immediately after.
- Reduce "hidden sugars" as much as possible: bottled juices, pastry (croissants, cookies), liquid yogurts, sliced soft bread, french fries, bagged snacks, sodas, etc.
