Watch Out For Hidden Sugar

November 8, 2019

Family Dentist Richardson

Every health-conscious parent knows that sugar is the number one cause of cavities. Plenty of us adults also snack on too many sweet snacks and beverages. At The Richardson Dentist, we want you to be aware of hidden sugar and its risks to your dental health.

Because of cavity risks, low nutritional value, and high-calorie content, many parents want to limit the sugar in their children’s diets. Bubble gum, lollipops, and chocolate bars are among the obvious ones, but there is also sugar lurking in so-called ‘healthy’ snacks.

Here are some popular 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 is essential for lifelong oral health. When choosing lunchbox or after-school snacks for your child, make sure you read the labels. Sugar content varies among brands.

At The Richardson Dentist, we want the best dental health for you and your kids. Our services include general and restorative dentistry. Schedule an appointment with us today!
