Summer provides all the products for natural snacks for you and your kids to enjoy. These healthy snacks are good for the teeth, meaning less trips to the dentist.

Key takeaways:

– Enjoy being creative with the kids when making natural snacks such as frozen fruit bars or fruit pizza.

– Add nuts, seeds and fruit to frozen yoghurt for a healthy twist to create frozen yoghurt bark.

– Adding crunchy vegetables to your hummus will help clean teeth and get rid of plaque.

“Summer offers an array of fruits that are in season. The natural sugar in these fruits is different from refined sugars—their high water content and fiber makes them a healthy snack for your teeth as well as your body.”
