Your teeth enjoy Thanksgiving dinner just as much as you do. The vegetables and protein we enjoy with family and friends benefit our oral and overall health in unique ways you may not realize. Here are a few reasons why some Thanksgiving foods are good for your teeth:

 

PACKED WITH PROTEIN

Turkey is known for its protein content, but even people who don’t eat meat can enjoy the benefits of protein during Thanksgiving with foods like green beans, peas, and corn.

 

The body uses protein for strong bones and muscles and healthy skin. It also lowers blood pressure. Our bodies don’t store protein, so it’s important to make sure that we have enough in our daily diet!

 

VARIOUS VITAMINS IN VEGETABLES

Side dishes like kale or broccoli are great because of their vitamin content. Dark, leafy green vegetables are rich in vitamins A, C, E and K. They also have high levels of iron, fiber, and potassium. Dark greens also give our bodies folate, a vitamin that promotes heart health.

 

Orange and yellow vegetables like squash, carrots, sweet potatoes and pumpkin are packed with vitamin C, beta-carotene, and other nutrients that help our bodies in many ways. They help lower our blood pressure, lower our LDL, or “bad,” cholesterol, boost our immune systems, and promote healthy joints. It doesn’t hurt that they’re foods that are good for your teeth, too!
