Can I snack in between meals?

Yes, although we advise you to stick to three meals a day if you are going to have a snack we recommend choosing healthy options such and nuts, cheese and crackers rather than sweets and chocolates.

Healthy snack options

A lot of people like to snack which is not a problem as long as you are eating the right foods/drinks such as the few listed below

  • Cheese and cracker
  • Nuts
  • Vegetables such as raw carrot sticks and celery
  • Milk
  • Water
  • Fruit

Although Fruit is very healthy for you fruit drinks and smoothies contain a lot of sugar which contributes towards tooth decay, this is because when fruit is blended/juiced it releases sugars.

Frequency of sugar

The most important thing to remember is, its not the amount of sugar you’re having its how frequently you’re having it. It is recommended that you only have 3 acid attacks per day, breakfast, lunch and tea time and if you’re having sugary snacks away from your three meals you are more likely to cause tooth decay , so all food containing sugars should be kept to meal times only.
