Parents beware!

This summer I have seen a number of young patients (under the age of 6) with decay in their teeth…. but they have healthy low sugar diets (very few sweets!) and motivated caring parents who do check their children have cleaned their teeth…..
The thing these children have had in common , is their habit of consuming dried raisins as a ‘snack’.
Traditionally considered ‘quite healthy’…. dried fruit (in particular raisins) can contain a lot of sugar and remain stuck in the teeth for periods of time.
I would like to advise all of our patients, but particularly parents of young children to be aware of this, and try to avoid dried fruit as a snack between meals and stick to fresh fruit or something savoury.
