There are many snacks on the market today that look appealing or are packaged as “healthy”. The truth is we have to do our research when it comes to packaged foods. There are so many items disguised on the back of those wrappers. Some names we can hardly pronounce!
If you are looking for a healthy snack that also benefits your smile, we’ve got a great suggestion! Blueberries! There are no wrappers involved with this fresh and healthy snack. They contain the highest amount of antioxidants among all most consumed fruits and vegetables. Antioxidants boost your immune system and can help prevent gum disease. They also contain polyphenols, which are beneficial acids that defend teeth against harmful bacteria. The next opportunity you get, reach for blueberries instead of packaged snacks.
