Why Starting Your Day With Cereal Might Not Be The Best Call For Your Smile

We know, we know; cereal is a breakfast staple. Plus, it’s super quick and easy to prepare. However, you might want to reconsider your morning meal choices if your current cereal selection

1. Is Sugar-Packed

You don’t need a (superficially) sweet treat, especially first thing in the morning. Many cereal brands go wild when it comes to sugar and artificial flavors and that is the last thing that your grin needs.

Double-check the nutritional label and ingredient list too, as some “healthy” options are simply masquerading as such. Not to mention, they will likely not tide you over until lunchtime.

2. Has Questionable Toppings

Marshmallows, for example! Take a step back and examine whether the extra “flavor” in your go-to pick is actually putting your oral health at risk.

3. Contains Sticky Substances

Granola, honey, dried fruits—they all leave a lasting impression on (and in between) your teeth. Be sure to brush and floss afterwards, if you chose to chow down anyway.
