How to keep your sweet tooth under control during lockdown

Working from home remotely

+ Increased stress level

+ change in routine

= sweet tooth



Here are our top 5 tips for avoiding a sweet tooth and tooth ache during the Covid19 lockdown. Please remember to take care of yourselves as well as others…

  1. Don’t treat your mouth as a bin -it’s important not to waste food during this time but remember your health is important too

  2. Avoid rewarding yourself with sugary treats -you are not a dog! Instead, reward yourself with a hot bath, a nice walk or other fun activity 😉

  3. Try to avoid boredom snacking in between meals -recognise it, stop it, replace it -with another activity, break that habit

  4. Take advantage of isolation and don’t buy the sugary treats in the first place -with the number of times you visit the supermarket  dwindling, this is a fool proof tactic!

  5. Once in while enjoy a sugary treat! – moderation can help prevent binging and you are only human after all
