6 MouthHealthy Holiday Snacks (That Are Almost Too Cute to Eat)


The holidays is a time when it’s very easy to indulge in a lot of sweets. Sugar-packed treats can wreak havoc on your teeth. This season, ring in the festivities with healthy and fun holiday snack options that fill your mouth with joy.

Egg Snowmen

Egg Snowmen recipe from Roxy's Kitchen 

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.

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 an excellent source of vitamins and minerals. (Just be sure to floss before flashing a smile beneath the mistletoe!)
