We all know that discussions about good dietary habits and nutrition take place every day almost everywhere. Families talk about it at home, teachers discuss it in schools and doctors, nurses and registered nutritionists discuss good nutrition with patients.
Many people believe that flavor must be sacrificed when eating nutritious foods. This is far from true. Some research confirms that taste is more important than nutrition when choosing one food over another. Realistically, the foods people enjoy most are usually the ones they eat. Therefore, setting healthy eating standards that also satisfy the taste buds is important to family nutrition.
The Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics promotes National Nutrition Month in March to show how to mix good taste and nutrition with healthy meals. This year’s theme is “Savor the Flavor of Eating Right.” Check out the 7 Kitchen Staples for Teen-Friendly Meals.Read More

Lollipops are a cavity on a stick and soda is pure sugar in a can. Candy and soda cause tooth decay. You’ve been taught this since grade school. This is not news, is it? Well, what about the fact that sports drinks ruin your teeth, too? Heard that one before?
Dr. Rebecca H. Hohl DDS MS and the team want to make sure you understand sports drinks can damage healthy teeth. Actually, “erode” is more like the term, especially around the brackets while wearing braces. These sort of drinks erode your teeth by “demineralization,” or reducing the minerals in the outer tooth enamel and also the dentin (“dentin” is a yellowish, calcified tissue underneath the tooth enamel). It doesn’t affect the enamel underneath the braces covered by the brackets. Read More
