2.  Breakfast

Not everything you eat for breakfast is bad, but many of the grains that we eat, such as muesli and granola, have additives and coatings that can have as much as three tablespoons of sugar in each serving. Worse still is when people munch their cereal dry, without the benefit of milk.  It’s almost like chewing on sugar cubes.

A better alternative would be eggs or even oatmeal, but if you love cereal or granola, be sure to eat it with milk. (Raw, organic milk is best.) The calcium and vitamin D in milk really help to lessen the impact of sugar on the teeth and strengthen them at the same time.
