Holidays can feel like a challenge with braces, especially if this is your first holiday season with them. With Thanksgiving approaching it may come as a relief to know that you can still enjoy many of the traditional holiday foods that you look forward to each year.
These foods are safe for you to eat with braces:
• Corn that is cut off the cob
• Sweet Potatoes
• Mashed Potatoes
• Stuffing (as long as there are no nuts or crunchy foods hidden within it)
• Green beans (with the same warning to be on the lookout for crunchy items in casseroles)
• Cooked carrots
• Most desserts are safe to eat with braces as long as they aren’t too crunchy or have anything too sticky, like caramel etc. on them.
Enjoy a wonderful Thanksgiving!
