Common everyday commercial food products for children

  At the Dentist Epping we’re very aware that sometimes it can be very difficult for you to know what everyday, commercial food products you can give your children to eat. Which ones will be nutritious and safe for their teeth – and the rest of their bodies? After all you want to do the best for your children, but it’s very difficult to know who to believe. There are so many claims in the marketplace about what is healthy, and you’d like to trust a food item which claims to be “natural.” Let’s see what the Australian Dental Association…
