Health tips for children



Sweets and snacks - Children


Eating sweet and sticky foods frequently between meals causes dental decay.
Snack foods such as cakes, biscuits, crisps, chocolate and sweets, are often high in sugar and saturated fat, and low in certain vitamins and minerals.
So if your child does eat these sorts of foods:
  • try to make sure they eat them only occasionally or in small amounts, so they only make up a relatively small part of the overall diet.
  • help and encourage your child to clean their teeth every day.
  • try picking a weekly sweet day, or choose the weekends as a time when your child is allowed to eat sweets.
