Tooth Friendly BBQ Snacks For Your Next BBQ
Food comes in many forms and flavours. Barbecued snacks are one of the most popular ones that the entire family can cherish and enjoy. Preparing BBQ snacks can be a merry event where the whole family gathers outside while the food is being made.
Barbecue grills can be used to make some utterly delicious and healthy snacks. Here are 5 tooth friendly BBQ snacks that you can try at home, without worrying about them affecting your teeth!
This is a type of cheese that is very good for children as it is high on calcium. It also helps increase the saliva production and reduces the chances of tooth decay. You can cut the brie into cubes and heat it over the oven for five minutes. Then top it with strawberries. This will make a great and scrumptious dish that kids would love to eat.
This is a low-fat snack with an abundance of beef that is high in phosphorus and calcium—both of which are good for the teeth. You can BBQ the patty that is a mixture of beef, egg yolk, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, green onion, and breadcrumbs. Mix the ingredients thoroughly and make the patty. Use only olive oil and make sure you add the cheese between the bread rolls only in the end.
It is a great source of protein and certain inflammatory oils. The macadamia coated on Barramundis keeps it moist and also removes the plaque from the teeth. You can also use orange zest, Vienna bread, and melted butter to make the dish. Preheat it in the oven and serve it with a salad on the side.
Roast Potato Salad
Green leafy vegetables are high on calcium which helps keep your bones and teeth healthy. If you are missing chips on the side (crispy chips are bad for your teeth!), you can opt for roasted potatoes with caramelized onion.
You can have a mixture of fruits topped with walnut, honey, and fresh mint leaves. Toss them around and serve.
You need to make sure there is plenty of water available around when your family is eating barbecue food.
