If you fill your car with bad gasoline - maybe some that has somehow been mixed with a bit of water, dirt, or other foreign matter - you’ll probably have a good deal of trouble getting your car to travel down the road. The same is true of food that fuels your body. What you eat has a significant impact on your attitude, health, and well-being.

Eating healthy not only helps you maintain a healthy weight - which is essential in fighting off numerous serious diseases - it also makes you feel better every day. A balanced diet will give your body the fuel it needs to keep your energy level high. And that fuel also plays a vital role in the prevention of tooth decay and gum disease. The sooner you start eating healthy, the better chance you will have of maintaining a healthy weight, high energy, and good oral health. The good news is, it’s easy to start eating healthier today!

In fact, many kids with special problems begin orthodontic treatment before the age of 10.
