Week Three

  • Keep healthy ingredients in the pantry
  • Share meals with your family
  • Reduce food waste
  • Try new favors and foods

How to Eat Better for Your Teeth

Make sure your diet contains these key ingredients that are essential to your dental health:

Calcium – This mineral is important because it helps to form strong teeth and bones. Calcium helps harden your enamel and strengthen your jawbone.

Vitamin D – Vitamin D helps your body absorb calcium while boosting bone mineral density.

Phosphorus – Make sure you eat foods such as cereals, wheat germs, almonds, fish, eggs, grapes or tomatoes that contain phosphorus.

Vitamin C – Foods such as potatoes, broccoli, berries and oranges are high in Vitamin C!
