Braces-friendly Summer Treats

Summer is hopping, barbecues are heating up, and the picnics are in full swing! Just because you have braces doesn’t mean you have to miss out on all the yummy summer picnic foods. Here are some popular summer treats that are braces-friendly!

  • Popsicles
  • Cupcakes
  • Pudding
  • Ice cream
  • Yogurt
  • Soft fruit
  • Fruit cups (avoid ones with lots of syrup)
  • Cheese and crackers
  • Not all crunchy foods are bad! Just aim for a less intense crunch, such as walnuts or soft granola bars

As always, try to avoid sugary foods, foods with nuts in them, and remember to brush your teeth afterward to prevent any sticky foods from sticking to your hardware.
