The end of the summer season is upon us, which means that your kids are getting back into the swing of school here in Cinco Ranch. Treating your children and yourself to yummy snacks is a great way to bond and give your children a break from their school work. As yummy as snacks are, it is important to remember that large amounts of sugar are definitely not the best choice for your teeth. Consuming too many sugary foods can cause tooth damage and can compromise your dental health.
However, we completely understand that it is not realistic to expect our patients to say no to all yummy snacks! If you’re going to treat yourself to something sugary, we recommend that you opt for ice cream or frozen yogurt. Dairy is great for building healthy teeth and bones, so you can balance out the sugar in your dessert with a few health benefits like calcium and probiotics (found in frozen yogurt). Here are some of our favorite places to get yummy snacks here in Cinco Ranch!
