Eating too much sugar is really bad for your health.

It is important for your child to get a good start in life. In order to learn new things, your child needs to feel healthy and strong. Preventing tooth decay will help your child’s progress and promote good overall 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.
