Do certain foods cause tooth decay in babies?

Sweets (including fruit, dried fruit, juice, and food such as peanut butter and jelly) and starches (such as breads, crackers, pasta, pretzels) can contribute to cavities.

Serve these foods at mealtime rather than as snacks so they’re more likely to get dislodged and won’t sit on the teeth too long. Serving them with water is also helpful.

Don’t put your baby to bed with a bottle of milk, formula, juice, or sweetened liquid. These liquids feed bacteria in the mouth that cause tooth decay.
