Teeth grinding is an unpleasant reality for some kids. A dentist will refer to grinding teeth as bruxism, which is the clenching and grinding of the teeth affecting about 30% of children. This is an abnormal condition, which is usually outgrown. In the meantime, the teeth will need to be protected against any damage while asleep.
Part of helping your child have better oral health and development is being mindful of their sugar intake and snack choices. Kids are highly exposed to sugar treats all throughout the year. With holidays involving candies scattered throughout the year (Valentines Day, Easter, Halloween etc.) not to mention all the kids birthday parties and the just because treats. It is safe to say that the sugar amount of most kids should be controlled and avoided to help their teeth and overall health.
