Teeth-friendly Fruits & Vegetables No. 8: Pineapples

by | Feb 11, 2016



At Team Demas, we get lots of questions from mothers asking about which kinds of teeth-friendly fruits are good for their kids. Today we’re going to look at a unique tropical fruit, packed full of essential vitamins and nutrients: the pineapple.

The Health Benefits of Pineapple

Pineapples are one of the world’s healthiest foods, combining a juicy sweetness with a refreshing tartness. Second only to popularity to bananas in the United States, pineapples are one of the healthiest and most delicious teeth-friendly fruits to give to your kids. Not only does every serving of pineapple come with a healthy dose of Vitamin C, but pineapple also contains significant amounts of manganese, copper, vitamin B6, and vitamin B1 (also known as thiamine).

Pineapple is unique in that it contains bromelein, a special enzyme that has been proven to be an effective anti-inflammatory agent and antioxidant. The other enzymes in pineapple are excellent for promoting a healthy digestion as well as boosting the immune system.
