Healthier Bedtime Snacks for Children

We’ve all been guilty of late-night cravings and bedtime snacks, no matter our age! While we know that late-night eating isn’t great for our health or our teeth, there are certain snacks that are healthier options than others. Instead of reaching for a sugary snack that might damage your child’s teeth or leave him feeling sluggish in the morning, choose a healthier option! 

Healthy Bedtime Snacks

Making a regular habit of late-night eating isn’t a great idea but choosing healthier options can allow you to bend this rule more often! Some of the best bedtime snacks to offer your kids include the following:

  • Cottage cheese
  • Whole-grain crackers
  • Almonds
  • Sliced bananas
  • Low-sugar cereal and milk
  • Oatmeal with fruit

These snacks are not detrimental to your child’s health and some of them may actually improve sleep. Make sure that your children brush their teeth after their bedtime snacks; it’s never a good idea to go to bed with food on your teeth. The best thing you can do for your child’s oral health is to make sure he or she is practicing good oral hygiene. This means brushing twice a day, flossing daily, and taking your children to Firestone Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics here in Firestone, Colorado.
