Healthy Diet = Healthy Mouth

It's the old adage of what you put into it is what you get out of it. The basic science of it tells us that if we put healthy things in our mouth it directly effects the performance and health of our bodies. This goes for your child's oral heatlh as well. Many of the simple vitamins and minerals such as vitamen D and calcium found in fresh produce and dairy products have a huge impact on the formation of healthy teeth and gums.

That's all well and good, but what do you do as a parent if you have picky eaters? If this is your battle you are not alone. Sometimes the solutions to our battles are found in fun and creative approaches. For some simple and creative ideas for adding healthy choices to your child's diet, check out this article written by Aimee Zipkin. She is a registered dietitian who has compiled a list of 12 ways to get your pre-schooler to eat their fruits and veggies.
