What is your breakfast food of choice? Is it yogurt or cereal? Or maybe something quick from Starbucks or Mcdonald’s? You might be surprised to learn your breakfast choice could be harming your oral health.

We’re sharing a video by Science Insider that talks about certain breakfast foods that have higher sugar content than a donut. The reason sugar is so bad for your teeth is that it blends in with the bacteria in your mouth. This combination leads to more plaque on your teeth, and as a result, increases your risk for tooth decay or cavities. 

Choose breakfast foods that have lower sugar content, such as healthy proteins like eggs, yogurts with lower sugar content, and whole grain toast.
