 Consume a rainbow of fruits and vegetables during the week.

 Add a fruit or vegetable to every meal you eat.

Brush their teeth twice a day with fluoride toothpaste. Give your child healthy foods. Take your child to the dentist every 6 months. Get care right away if you have concerns between dental visits.
