Veggies and fruits those are crispy in texture, act as a scrub that removes the bacteria. They also help in the production of saliva, which is a natural cleanser that removes the food bits. Thus saliva reduces the chances of the breaking-down of the food by the bacteria.

Yogurt has the ability to reduce the levels of the sulphite compounds in your mouth, which are the sources of bad breath.

Parsley and basil are rich in polyphenol that reduces the sulphite compounds in your mouth. If you love garlic, have it with the parsley, to prevent the smell of garlic after the meal.

Cherries have the ability to remove the odour of methyl mercaptan, which is also a type of gas produced by the bacteria in your mouth.
