June is National Fresh Fruits & Veggies Month

Essential vitamins and minerals for your teeth

Just in time for summer, June is National Fresh Fruits & Veggies Month. It’s important to get the right amount of nutrition when it’s hot out so you don’t dehydrate.

Leafy Greens

Leafy greens should always be on your healthy foods list. Not only are they full of vitamins and minerals. but low in calories too.

So what leafy greens do we mean? Kale and spinach promote oral health. They’re high in calcium, which builds your teeth’s enamel. They also contain a type of B vitamin that “helps treat gum disease in pregnant women,” according to MedlinePlus. Add baby spinach to your next lunch salad or add kale on your pizza.

Carrots During National Fresh Fruits & Veggies Month

Did you know that carrots are full of fiber? Take raw carrots as a work snack because it increases saliva production in your mouth, which reduces your risk of cavities. Top your salad with a few slices of raw carrots.


Sure, celery is boring. However, it helps scrape food particles and bacteria away from your teeth. It’s also a good source of vitamins A and C, which helps your gums. Make celery tasty but topping it with some low-fat cream cheese – YUM!
