Tooth decay occurs when plaque in the mouth combines with sugar in foods and produces acids that attack tooth enamel. That doesn’t mean your child must avoid sugar entirely. Milk, fruits and vegetables all contain forms of sugar, but provide many important vitamins and minerals. When choosing foods for your family, read nutritional labels and avoid foods with added sugars. A balanced diet based on the Food Guide Pyramid will give your child the nutrition needed for a healthy smile.
