The holidays are a wonderful time with family, friends, gifts, and indulgent desserts. However, too much sugar can impact your family's oral health! There are several healthier alternatives and recipe substitutions for holiday desserts. These include swapping cups of sugar out for apple sauce, topping cakes and cookies with nuts and dried fruit, or swapping out candy for a board game instead. All of these steps will reduce the amount of sugar you and your family consume during the holiday season.
