Superstar Smile Snacks for Your Oscar Party

Posted By Kristi DeWitt-Quintero, Delta Dental of AZ, Monday, February 19, 2018
Updated: Thursday, February 8, 2018

 

For many people, Academy Awards night is the event of the season. But the celebrities at the Oscars aren’t the only ones who deserve the red-carpet treatment. Even if your Oscar party guests won’t be posing for the paparazzi, you can give their smiles the star treatment with these snacks and drinks that won’t wreak havoc on oral health.

  • Rosé? No way.Champagne, prosecco and rosé may be having their moment in the spotlight, but these trendy tipples can be hard on tooth enamel because of their high acid levels.10,11 Opt for sparkling water or even a dry martini instead.
  • Say “Yes, please,” to cheese. A fancy cheese tray – or even just slices of good ol’ cheddar – is a no-brainer. Cheese is always a crowd pleaser, and you can dress it up with a charcuterie board including prosciutto, salami and chorizo. Throw in some healthy garnishes, such as almonds and pickles, and you’ve got a spread that’s sure to impress. But skip the crackers and crostini. Foods that are high in carbohydrates break down into sugars that can harm your enamel just like the sugars in cookies and candies.
  • A veggie tray will save the day. Instead of opening up a bag of chips, which are also high in carbohydrates and starches, put a veggie tray on the menu. Vegetables will provide the same satisfying crunch your guests crave while keeping their smiles healthy. If you’re looking for something different than the usual celery, carrots and broccoli, try parsnips, jicama, snap peas, artichokes and asparagus.
  • Berries are merry. For a little something sweet, opt for berries drizzled with dark chocolate. Dark chocolate has lower sugar content than milk chocolate and white chocolate, so it’s a good choice for dessert.
