Tips to Develop a Healthy Smile in Children

A child's oral health begins with what – and when – they eat.

The benefits of a well-balanced diet extend beyond a child’s growth and development. Healthy eating is also essential to developing a strong, healthy smile. 

As part of Children’s Dental Health month, we interviewed Cigna's National Dental Director, Dr. Deborah Fuller, to learn about the role nutrition plays in a child’s oral health. Dr. Fuller shares helpful tips for parents on how to prevent cavities, which include what to look for on nutrition labels, key foods to reduce or avoid, and considerations for when to eat.
