Snacking on unhealthy food in between meals may play havoc to your waistline. While fruits might be a better option for your physique, they may damage your teeth, reveals a survey.

The warning about snacking on sugary fruit comes from a poll of 458 dentists, hygienists and dental professionals. Commissioned by Dentyl Active, the survey explored the foods and habits that are eroding Britain's dental health, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

Four out of five warned that snacking contributes to decay, plaque build-up and enamel erosion, and a third said that apples can cause major damage to teeth and gums - alongside chocolate and biscuits.

Experts also warned that fruit juice is a key cause of tooth and gum problems.
