“You can’t change the direction of the wind but you can adjust your sails”

The World Health Organisation is encouraging people to seek information from legitimate sources only. They state we need to connect safely with those who are isolated, and to curb exposure to news that makes them anxious or distressed. The sudden and near constant stream of news reports about COVID19 can cause anyone to feel worried. Get the facts not the rumours and misinformation. Facts can help to ease anxiety and aid in the promotion of positive mental health. Facts minimise fear.

“Healthy” foods you didn’t know were filled with sugar

“Healthy” foods you didn’t know were filled with sugar.
Eating too much sugar is really bad for your health.
Many people are now trying to minimize their sugar intake, but it’s easy to underestimate how much you’re actually consuming.
One of the reasons is that many foods contain hidden sugars, including some foods that you wouldn’t even consider to be sweet.

Hidden Sugar Content in Food

Good dental health like good general health relies on having healthy eating habits. Our teeth can be affected as much by our diet, as by not brushing our teeth regularly. Modern diets can be high in sugar, fats and salt, impacting both on general and oral health.

Nutrition and your Child’s Oral Health

Good nutrition is extremely important and plays a huge role in the health of children including their teeth. Fruit and vegetables are the best foods that your kids can consume, as they are low in sugar, have a high water content and are rich in vitamins, especially vitamin C which helps prevent bleeding gums. Calcium (Milk, Cheese etc…) contributes to bone strength and plays a part in making sure your child’s nerves and muscles function correctly. Calcium also re-mineralises the enamel on their teeth.
