Summer is fast approaching! Here at Quest Johnson Orthodontics, we are excited for BBQ’s, picnics, pool parties and vacation time! Summer is especially the defining moment for kids. Everyone is out of school and ready to relax. With relaxation and an abnormal routine, it is easy for kids with braces to forget two important food categories they’re supposed to avoid: hard foods and sticky foods!
Here are some great and not so great classic summer foods that are great for kids (or anyone really) who has braces.
- Jell-O desserts
- Soft fruit
Here are some foods those with braces, should avoid this summer!
- Beef jerky
- Hard pretzels
- Rice Krispies treats
- Hard/sticky candy (i.e., with caramel or nuts)
