Diet and nutrition play a fundamental role in general health and oral health in children and adults. Dietary guidelines have been developed to provide evidence-based recommendations for populations promoting a diet that meets the best nutritional requirements and prevents diet-related diseases such as overweight, obesity, diabetes and dental caries. Lifestyle and dietary habits are strongly influenced by the (social) media and the products on offer in the supermarkets. Knowledge of the field of the development of foodstuffs and lifestyle trends contributes to effective, appropriate and individualised advice for a healthy mouth in children. Sugar-free flavoured waters with aroma are a good alternative to fizzy drinks, they are tooth friendly and promote a healthy weight.
