Put away the sugary waffles and pancakes. We have some delicious, tooth-healthy ideas for your next breakfast. Each of these recipes is low in sugar and high in teeth-strengthening nutrients. This way, you can avoid the cavities, while keeping your tastebuds happy.
Egg White Omelette
Egg whites are high in protein and low in fat. They’re also a great source of calcium, which is known for helping to strengthen tooth enamel. Pair your egg white omelette with spinach, peppers and mushrooms for an extra healthy breakfast!
Greek yogurt parfait with fruit
The probiotics and calcium present in yogurt help to strengthen the healthy bacteria in your mouth! Yogurt is also known for helping to prevent gum disease. Those who consumed yogurt at least once a week had an 18% lower risk of developing gum disease. For bonus points, reach for the Greek yogurt with no sugar added and top with strawberries.
To get extra healthy, fire up your blender to make a green smoothie. Add leafy greens like spinach and kale to your smoothie for a boost of calcium, folic acid and vitamin B. These nutrients also help to fight gum disease! Don’t forget to add fruit like bananas and oranges to give your smoothie a sweeter taste.
