What’s a Great Food to Eat with Braces?
1. Yogurt. Looking for something quick and easy to have for breakfast or a snack on the go? Yogurt requires no chewing, and because there are literally hundreds of different types of yogurt, you are sure to be able to find one or many that you enjoy.
2. Mac and Cheese. Tip: boil the noodles for an extra minute so that they become extremely soft. Mac and cheese is a great choice of food to eat with braces. Some chewing is required, but this tip makes it manageable.
3. Chicken Noodle Soup. Chicken noodle soup is usually associated with cold winter days, or when one is sick, but it’s a go-to meal in the early stages of braces. Filled with protein, vitamins, and minerals, chicken noodle soup will also help your mouth heal. Live a little and soak bread or crackers in the broth until they too are easy to eat!
4. Zucchini Parmesan Crisps. Speaking of living a little, we here at Castilla Orthodontics in Marion County, OR, came across this tasty zucchini parmesan crisps recipe that won’t break your brackets!
