Sugar Free Gum A Good Snack For Kids Going Back To School

A local dentist says if your kids need something sweet to chew on after lunch at school it is better to have them use sugar-free chewing gum than candy. Dr. Maddie Walter works at Dental Associates in Fond du Lac. She says a lot of kids keep sweets in their lockers. She recommends allowing them to use sugar-free gum, which will help clean their teeth after lunch and won’t coat their teeth with harmful sugar like other sweet treats.
