‘After eating, teeth are under attack from the sugar in the food you’ve eaten for up to two hours. I don’t allow snacks, or teeth would be under constant attack. My daughter has four meals a day. After each one, I give her a cube of cheese to help neutralise any acid.’
8) Rachel Dinwoodie, from London, consultant orthodontist, mum to Alice, two, and Charlotte, 10 weeks, says:
‘I clean Alice’s teeth with an electric toothbrush from Brush Baby (£8.99,Amazon).
It has a light on the end to make it easier for me to see what I’m doing. Alice just loves using it.’
