Before all of the Easter egg hunts this season, give your kids some more incentives to find those hidden eggs by explaining how beneficial they are for their health! As well as benefiting overall health, eggs also have multiple benefits for your teeth!

Phosphorous is one of the most plentiful minerals in the body and is essential to healthy teeth. Eggs are a great source of phosphorous, which promote the formation of tooth enamel. Not only do they contain large amounts of phosphorous that can benefit your teeth and bones, they also contain high amounts of protein, which protects teeth from cavity-causing acids created as carbohydrates ferment.

So let the Easter egg hunts begin, and after all the eggs are found, sit down and crack a few open for a tooth-healthy snack!
