Want healthy meals your kids will love?



I found the most interesting list in my Nutrition text book.  Foods considered the most sticky promote tooth decay, while the least sticky food have little effect on tooth decay.

Most Sticky:

  • caramels
  • chewy cookies
  • crackers
  • cream filled cookies
  • granola bars
  • marshmallows
  • pretzels
  • taffy


  • Doughnuts
  • figs
  • frosting
  • fudge
  • hard candy
  • honey
  • jelly beans
  • pastries
  • raisins
  • syrup

Somewhat sticky:

  • bagels
  • cake
  • cereal
  • dry cookies
  • milk chocolate
  • rolls
  • white bread

Barely Sticky

  • Apples
  • bananas
  • fruit drinks
  • fruit juices
  • ice cream
  • oranges
  • peaches
  • pears.

So I guess the moral of the story, more ice cream, less raisins!

Sounds good to me! Luckily our big snack is apples. .. can’t keep them in stock around here. But of course we love our ice cream. good to know that we have a good excuse to have it.
