It's not sugar itself that causes cavities, but it has more to with the reaction that sugar causes. It is the food or fuel for the bacteria that gather in the biofilm on your teeth called plaque. The bacteria consume the sugar and produce acid as a byproduct, which eats away at your teeth causing enamel erosion and tooth decay. 

Building Great Oral Care for a Lifetime

Teaching your child about the dangers of consuming sugars early on will help them develop good habits they can take into the future. Limit their consumption of sugary beverages, including fruit juices, which are high in acids and loaded with sugar. Encourage them into the habit of drinking water at a young age, which will protect their teeth and keep them hydrated. 

Also promote fruits and vegetables for their snacks, which neutralize the acids in their mouth that cause tooth decay and increases saliva flow, which also helps protect their teeth by washing away food debris.
