Healthy Easter Meals

Posted by CITY FAMILY DENTAL on Mar 3 2022, 06:19 AM

Easter is here again. On Easter Sundays, all those marshmallow Peeps, jelly beans, and chocolate eggs are certainly tempting. And when you throw in those delectable cakes, drinks, and snacks, the entire celebration can turn into a day of diet overindulgence. Choose your easter meals wisely with City Family Dental.

Try Healthy Easter Meals

  • Homemade baked goods:

You can control the amount of sugar you consume by making your baked goods. You will also be able to use less harmful sugar substitutes for your teeth.

  • Nut-filled chocolate bars:

Nuts aid in breaking down all of the sugar in the chocolate. Chocolate bars are also a good size for a day's worth of sugar.

  • Dark chocolate: 

Dark chocolate is the best type of chocolate for your teeth because it contains far less sugar than milk chocolate. If you prefer, there are sugar-free chocolate options available in many supermarkets.

Things to Consider on Easter

  • Maintaining a Routine

Stick to your routine always. Brushing your teeth twice a day for two minutes each time should be part of your routine. You should also floss every day. Sticking to this routine, especially during the Easter season, will keep your teeth healthy and cavity-free even if you indulge in a little chocolate. 

  • It's About How Often You Are Consuming

It's not always about how many sugary treats you consume, but rather how frequently. We recommend that you limit your chocolate consumption to once per day. We believe that it is best to do this during mealtimes rather than between meals. This is because a mouth that is already producing saliva will do a better job of combating the acid attack.

  • Celebrate Easter in an Alternative Way

Chocolate and candies are about Easter but Easter is not all about chocolates and candies. You can consider celebrating in an alternative way like treasure hunting, playing games, and having fun.

  • Book Your Appointment 

It is important to consult with your dentist to do post easter checkups. Visiting your dentist will enable him or her to detect any potential early symptoms of decay. 

While indulging in a little chocolate this Easter isn't the end of the world, your teeth will thank you if you schedule a dental checkup after the holiday.
