As any pediatric dentist will tell you, sugar is definitely not the best choice for your child’s teeth. Consuming too many sugary foods can lead to tooth damage and cavities. However, we understand that it is not realistic for you or your kids to never have dessert. If you’re going to treat your family to something sweet, we recommend that you opt for ice cream or frozen yogurt! Dairy is great for helping kids build healthy teeth and bones, so balance out the sugar in your dessert with a few health benefits like calcium (and probiotics found in frozen yogurt)! Here are some of our favorite ice cream and frozen yogurt spots in Aurora!
Sweet Cow Stanley, located in Stanley Market in Aurora is their newest and largest location! They are working on some finishing touches, including a large outdoor patio, grass, and their signature bouncy cows. Their shop has a cool farmhouse feel, and they serve scoops, shakes, sundaes, ice cream sandwiches, floats, and ice cream cakes. They are even good to the environment! Sweet Cow only serves their ice cream in compostable or recyclable containers. How awesome is that?
