The group offers this advice:
- Limit how often you snack. The carbs in many foods may combine with mouth bacteria to damage teeth -- 20 minutes or more after you've finished eating.
- Enjoy a well-balanced variety of healthy snacks, such as raw fruits and veggies, popcorn, low-fat cheese, plain yogurt and milk.

- After snacking, brush your teeth.
