We used sugar-free lollipops from Zolli Candy, a brand created by a young entrepreneur. At age 7, Alina Morse wanted to eat a lollipop that wasn’t bad for her teeth, so she set out to create Zollipops. These treats are better for your teeth because they are made with xylitol, erythritol, stevia, and other natural ingredients. Why exactly are these ingredients so good for your teeth? Well…
- Xylitol is an artificial sweetener that helps fight acids from sugary foods and bacteria in plaque.
- Erythritol is another sugar substitute that has been proven to strengthen teeth and reduce the development of cavities.
- Stevia is a sweetener that comes from a plant, and researchers found that it can reduce the presence of plaque as well as gingivitis.
These treats are a great alternative to the sugar packed candy they’ll most likely be collecting from their neighbors’ homes. It’s a treat they’ll like, and a treat you and your dentist will feel good about.
