Foods that give you bad breath

Have you ever noticed someones bad breath while speaking to them? Oops. But how mortifying would it be if your breath was iew while you were chatting to your crush?

No worries. Some of your favourite foods could be causing that breath. So if you are going on a date make sure you avoid these… However, if you can’t resist the delicious food just eat it!

Milk
The acidity and natural enzymes in milk combine with your saliva in a bad, bad way. It neutralizes the acid in your stomach, which sends up some gastric juice reinforcements that belong nowhere near your tongue.

Chocolate
We know what you’re thinking, but it’s true. The sugar content in chocolate can sometimes stimulate the growth of smelly plaque. So what should you do? Try dark chocolate which has a lower sugar content and brush your teeth after!

Dried Fruit
Dried fruit is packed with bacteria-promoting sugar so if you like to snack on dried fruit, just make sure you brush and floss before the bacteria begins festering.

Tuna Sandwiches
It’s the sandwich equivalent of a stink bomb. That sour, fishy smell occurs when seafood starts to oxidize in your mouth. So what’s the solution? Try eating tuna packed in extra virgin olive oil (this helps eliminate the smell). As always, brush those chompers after eating!
