Dentist Approved Summer Treats!

School is coming to an end and summer is quickly approaching! That means...Summer treats!

Below are some recipes for dental-friendly summer treats:

Frozen yogurt dots are the perfect healthy alternative to ice cream. Like other dairy products, yogurt contains calcium that promotes strong teeth. Begin by pouring a cup of yogurt into a plastic sandwich bag. Cut off one of the corners and squeeze the yogurt from the bag into drops on a baking sheet. Freeze the yogurt drops for at least 30 to 40 minutes.

Not only is celery nutritious, but it also helps rinse away bacteria from the mouth, promoting good oral health. For a fun and delicious spin, combine celery with peanut butter and raisins. Although raisins contain sugar, they are a far healthier alternative to candy. Prepare this treat by cutting celery stalks in half and slathering peanut butter on top. Sprinkle a few raisins on the celery and enjoy.

A summer staple, watermelon also helps with saliva production and rinses bacteria from the mouth. You can enjoy watermelon the old-fashioned way or if you prefer, you can cut a watermelon into slices, insert a Popsicle stick into the slices and place them in the freezer.
