Tooth-Friendly Recipe 9: Fruit Kabobs

Is Fresh Fruit Good For You?

Although you might be worried about whether the acidity of fresh fruit might damage your family’s teeth, you should know that the benefits of eating fruit far outweigh any risks. First of all, the sugar in fresh fruit is less damaging to teeth than the sugars in fruit-flavored candy or other sugary treats. Fresh fruit is also better for your teeth than dried fruit since sticky dried fruit can often stick to the surface of the teeth, causing problems with decay.

While most fruit is fine for your teeth and helps to provide vital nutrients to your entire body, some fruits are more acidic than others and can, if eaten in large amounts, cause some erosion of the enamel. While some fruits that are high in acid might seem obvious (like limes and lemons), others (like apples) might surprise you. Blue plumbs, grapes, pomegranates, blueberries, pineapples, peaches, mangos, and oranges are all very acidic. This does not mean, however, that you need to give up these nutritious fruits entirely.
