The current pocket money trends among school children are steeply increasing. The children receiving pocket money indulge in unhealthy habits. Access to pocket money by children has a direct influence on sweet snacking and junk food consumption. This unhealthy habit has gigantically leaped forward nowadays in school-aged children, leading to bitter consequences for their oral hygiene. There is a wide availability of fast food in nearby school areas, with prices within the range of pocket money. The pocket money trend turns out to be a risk factor for dental caries. This e-poster represents a questionnaire-based survey conducted among school children to show the implications of pocket money related to oral health in paediatric dentistry.

Keywords: caries, children and pocket money
