Limiting Sugar Intake For Healthier Lone Tree Kids

Healthy Teeth With Your Highlands Ranch Dentist

Every health-conscious Lone Tree parent knows that sugar is the number one cause of cavities for Colorado kids – and plenty of us adults also snack on too many sweet snacks and beverages.

Because of cavity risks, low nutritional value, and high calorie content, many Lone Tree parents want to limit the sugar in their children’s diets. Obviously, there is a lot of sugar in bubble gum, lollipops, and gummy candy. But there is also sugar lurking in so-called ‘healthy’ snacks.

Here are some popular Denver kid’s snacks with significant amounts of sugar:

yogurt covered raisins
fruit snacks including the roll-up and syrup-filled varieties
rice cakes
many brands of yogurt including the hand-held type
juice drinks
flavored milk
barbecue sauce
fruit smoothies
cereal bars

Controlling sugar intake in your Lone Tree child’s diet is essential for lifelong oral health and helps avoid the necessity for unpleasant trips to the dentist. When choosing lunchbox or after-school snacks at your Highlands Ranch market, Denver convenience store or Lone Tree recreation center snack bar, read the labels. Sugar content varies among brands.

Sugar is only one diet component that impacts Denver kids’ oral health. If your son’s or daughter’s diet is lacking key vitamins and minerals, the tissues in their mouth may have trouble fighting infection. These infections can lead to gum disease.
