A group of young children getting on the schoolbus

As everyone heads back to school, it’s time to get out the brown paper bags and the new lunch boxes and pack some snacks! What should you be reaching for? Well, there are a few things you can skip on your next grocery trip.

  • No need for gushers, or fruit roll-ups or even the dried fruits when you can have the real thing. Grab the apples and pears they naturally contain a lot of water – good for the mouth!
  • Cheese! As Wisconsinites we’re happy to hear this. Cheese can be a great snack for kids and even cuts down on the growth of plaque
  • Avoid popcorn – kernels and pieces can get stuck in-between teeth causing decay. If you need something crunchy there’s always veggies or pita chips with hummus or even guacamole!
