Here's a great tip in the September isssue of Parenting Magazine and also the October issue of AGD Impact (p.20) that a good idea after meals is to swish with water for 30 seconds to remove the food acids that harm the enamel. Brushing is better, but if you are in a pinch, this is a decent alternative.
