Cooked vegetables are a fantastic go-to meal when you’re trying to eat more produce in autumn. Not sure how to include more veggies in your diet? Here are three excellent ingredients that provide a satisfying meal and healthy teeth:
Leafy greens, such as spinach or kale, are low in calories and high in vitamins and minerals such as calcium and folic acid, which are necessary for maintaining healthy teeth and gums.
Black beans and cheese are also high in calcium and contain phosphorus, both of which are building blocks for your teeth’s enamel.
Sweet potatoes keep teeth healthy in a few different ways. Their texture makes them a natural abrasive that gently scrubs the surface of teeth. They are also rich in vitamin A and other antioxidants that fight inflammation and gum disease.
