Just like our body our teeth need vitamins and minerals to stay strong and healthy. For proper development and strength of our teeth, babies, children, adults and seniors need lots of:

* calcium (e.g. yogurt, milk, some cheese, milk shakes, eggnog)
* phosphorous (e.g. egg, beef, chicken, turkey, halibut, bread)
* vitamin A (e.g. liver, pumpkin, carrots, sweet potato, mango, spinach, broccoli)
* vitamin C (e.g. citrus fruits, cantaloupe, strawberries, tomatoes, cabbage)
* vitamin D (e.g. trout, mackerel, salmon, tuna, egg yolk, milk)
* fluoride

Calcium (with help from phosphorous and Vitamin D) is the main component of teeth and bones. It’s what keeps them strong. But we can’t forget about vitamin A because it’s necessary for the formation of tooth enamel or vitamin C which is essential for healthy gums.

Fluoride helps prevent tooth decay. In children, it works with calcium and phosphorous to help strengthen enamel, and in older adults, it helps restore and harden enamel. Ontario Dental Association
