Just got braces?

Just got braces?

Here are some foods you should avoid and foods that you can eat easily when you have braces on.

The first time you have your brackets and wire put on will be the most painful. During this time is it a good idea to stick to soft foods such as:

  • Smoothies
  • Eggs
  • Banana’s
  • Yoghurt
  • Soup
  • Mashed potato

Once the pain has subsided you can add some more to your diet:

  • Steamed vegetables
  • Soft fruits (grapes, melons)
  • Non tough meats (ham, chicken)
  • Soft cheese
  • Spaghetti or mac and cheese
  • Soft breads

Some key foods to avoid are:

  • Popcorn
  • Nuts
  • Hard or sticky lollies
  • Corn chips/hard taco shells
  • Pretzels
  • Ice
  • Tough meats (steak)
