Mouth Healthy Holiday Snacks
Sweet as the holidays may be, sugar-packed treats can wreak havoc on your pearly whites. This season, ring in the festivities with healthy and fun holiday snack options that fill your mouth with joy.

Egg Snowman

These adorable snowmen — made with hard-boiled eggs, carrots and peppercorns — will melt your heart before melting in your mouth. Eggs are a source of Vitamin D, which is needed to help absorb, carry and deposit calcium in the bone that supports your teeth. Carrots — which are crunchy, firm and full of water — help to scrub your teeth clean like a natural toothbrush.

Spinach Artichoke Frittata Trees

You won’t need to cut down on these trees! Dairy products like milk contain calcium; eggs are a source of Vitamin D, and leafy greens like spinach are excellent vitamins and minerals. (Be sure to floss before flashing a smile beneath the mistletoe!)

Pita Tree Appetizers

The low-fat sour cream in this recipe is a source of vitamin D, which strengthens bones and teeth.

Black Olive Penguins

These penguins will waddle their way into your heart — mainly because they’re filled with cream cheese, which has calcium.

Cheesy Reindeer

Rich in calcium, cheese is always a MouthHealthy favourite. To get perfectly round eyes and noses, the author of this recipe used a juice box-sized straw to cut round pieces of black olive and a giant straw for the red pepper nose.

Grinch Poppers

Be suitable, for goodness sake, to your teeth with these Grinch Poppers. For a healthier and more MouthHealthy alternative, swap the sugary and sticky marshmallow for another piece of banana.
