Great Snacks That Have Lots of Fiber In Them
Produce is one of the best fiber-filled snacks out there. You should be making sure you get at least 6-8 servings of vegetables per day anyway, so if you get an extra serving or two out of your snacks, it is certainly not going to hurt anything. Consider eating salads when you are hungry, and turn them into ways of increasing your overall produce intake. Start with healthy greens like spinach and kale. Add in carrots, celery, and cucumbers, but make sure not to peel them. You want the fiber that is in their skins.
If you don't feel up to eating a full meal-size salad, pick one of those ingredients and just eat it as a snack. Your teeth will still get the benefits. Just make sure you change up which options you grab regularly so you change up which nutrients you get.
For more ideas on things that you can do to give your teeth a boost, speak with your dentist. The next time you are in for an exam or cleaning, ask them what foods you should be eating more of to keep your smile healthy and looking great.
