It’s National Pigs in a Blanket Day

You may or may not have heard of it but, it’s National Pigs in a Blanket Day. These are hot dog weenies (pigs) wrapped in a crescent roll (like a blanket). Unfortunately, they’re not the greatest for your oral health.

Eating Pigs in a Blanket

Some like to use dipping sauces or add side dishes. Keep caution with,

  • BBQ sauce and other condiments. First off, all the sugars and vinegar in sauces can damage the enamel on your teeth.
  • Chips. Keep floss and toothpicks handy.
  • White bread. Do NOT wrap your hot dogs on a white bun.
  • Pickled veggies. Vinegar and brine damage your teeth.
  • Soda. Finally, sodas and juices are full of sugar. Consider drinking a cool glass of water instead.

Good Foods for National Pigs in a Blanket

  • Instead of chips, have fruits and veggies for sides.
  • Do you like cheese on your hot dog? Cheese and other dairy products are good for your teeth’s health.
  • Onions help neutralize oral bacteria.
  • Chew sugarless gum after your meal.
  • Ginger helps you get over any indigestion.
