World Oral Health Day


Today is the international day to celebrate the benefits of a healthy mouth and to promote worldwide awareness of the issues around oral health.

For all the debate about hidden ingredients in our everyday foods, sugar has remained curiously unresearched - even though it's present in nearly all our foods and can, if eaten in too large quantities, seriously damage our health.

In today’s on-the-go culture, convenience food and ready-meals are high in demand. Most people like to graze in between meals; unfortunately these are not always the healthiest option.

A few tips on regulating your snack habits from the D&T team:
- 2 snacks a day: one in the morning and one in the afternoon
- Avoid sweets such as chewy sweets as they spend more time sticking to the surface of your teeth.
- Recognise how often you are buying snacks
- Drink more water
- Indulge in calcium-rich foods, such as low-fat milk, yogurt, and cheese.
- Vegetables for vitamins A and C, and for chewing in order to promote healthy gums.
- Reading labels and choosing carefully
