Is egg daily is bad for the kids teeth?

March 22, 2007 3:01am CST
I have a 4 yr old girl that loves to eat egg everyday, eggs in the morning, eggs in the afternoon and even at night. But I heard to some people that too much egg is bad for their teeth. Is it true?

I cant say for sure about egg being bad for the teeth but this much i know that egg is a good source of protein, the egg white contains protein essential for muscles whereas the egg yolk contains cholestrol! Having egg in the morning, afternoon and night may give the girl some stomach problem cause egg is known be a little hard to diegest plus i've heard that its warm tendency can cause an upset stomach. If the girl in question lives in a place with cold climate than i think its ok but if she lives in a tropical or hot weather than i think she should eat one egg a day!

Cherries are a real treat for me, and I love things that are cherry-flavored, but I know that's at least partially influenced by the fact that it is my husband's favorite fruit.I love raspberries. I use them in so many thing including all the ones you listed for strawberries. I also love them as a salad topper, mixed into vanilla or plain yogurt,in granola, or even just by the handful.

I want to add that everything you eat is bad for your teeth. That is why we brush our teeth, floss, use mouthwash. Have your daughter brush her teeth every morning after breakfast and every evening after dinner or a late night snack if you allow her to have one. At that age she doesn't neet to floss or use mouthwash yet.

Eggs for one meal a day is healthy. I am not aware of any tooth problems linked to eating eggs and it sounds unlikely to me. I would recommend that she eat other things for two of her meals each day, especially plenty of vegetables and fruit.

I don't think this possible could be true, as only drinks and food that have sugar or are acidic are potentially bad for teeth. Coca Cola is bad, but also too many apples or just plain old juice. I also wouldn't recommend a 4 year old eating eggs 3 times a day, a child of that age should have a lot more variety. Try and bring it down to about 4 eggs a week, it's healthier for her.
