4 Foods to Eat When You Can’t Brush Your Teeth

Foods that are firm or crisp help to clean the teeth as they’re eaten. Here are a handful that will help you maintain healthy teeth on the go.

1. Apples (otherwise known as nature’s toothbrush)

2. Raw carrots

3. Celery

4. Popcorn (unsweetened)

For best results, make ‘detergent’ foods the final food you eat in your meal if you know you can’t brush your teeth straight after eating.
