Drink Milk After Eating Sugary Cereals, Study Suggests

Ready-to-eat cereals are a convenient breakfast option for kids and adults alike but did you know that since these generally contain sugar and starch, they could be harmful for your teeth?

Breakfast cereals contain carbohydrates that, when consumed, cause plaque bacteria on your teeth to produce acid. And when acid attacks tooth enamel, it could lead to dental decay.

A study revealed that one way to counter the effect of sugary cereals on teeth would be to drink milk after eating. Milk, researchers said, can reduce acidity of dental plaque that resulted from consuming sugary cereals. More about this study here.
