As we know, Easter is this weekend on 4/17/2022! Easter is filled with eggs, easter egg hunts, and lots of chocolate!
Here are some facts about this Easter and Bunnies:
- Did you know that Bunnies have 28 teeth? 6 front teeth and 22 back teeth. The 4 large incisor teeth are the ones you see when a bunny smiles. They also have 2 tiny incisor teeth- called peg teeth, right behind the bunnies uppers.
- Bunnies teeth grow! Yep! Did you know that they grow around 1 cm a month, meaning they can grow around 3-5 inches each year! Chewing lots of things and food helps the bunny maintain its teeth length to avoid mouth problems.
- One of the best things for a bunny to eat is hay. It helps their digestive system and requires a lot of chewing which keeps their teeth short.
- Americans spend $1.9 billion on Easter candy. That’s the second biggest candy holiday after Halloween!
- 70% of candy bought is chocolate.
Remember, Candy is meant to be a delight. Eat candy in moderation to balance out the good and bad and enjoy yourself!! Happy Easter and always remember to brush your teeth!
