Tooth tips for tiny tots

In response to studies that show that 23 per cent of three-year olds in Manchester had rampant tooth decay, the National Dairy Council has produced a booklet promoting advice for healthy teeth for the under-fives. The booklet was produced in association with the Health Education Authority and is designed for parents of young children. It contains useful advice prepared by dental professionals and nutritionists. This includes how to select a healthy diet for the one-to-five year olds, tooth friendly snack ideas, quick, delicious and easy to prepare recipes and answers to frequently asked questions about suitable drinks for children. The booklet is called Smile, and is available free of charge from the National Dairy Council, 5-7 John Princes Street, London W1M 0AP.
