New Hampshire had a snow storm just a few weeks ago, then this week, it’s a scorcher!! Concord reached a high of 86 degrees and we couldn’t be welcoming this warm weather with bigger and brighter smiles! It feels like we skipped Spring and hopped straight into Summer. Speaking of hopping, we have a holiday just around the corner and the Easter bunny likes to bring lots of sweet treats. The friendly staff at Vermette Orthodontics just wanted to remind all of our buddies with braces what foods and yummy desserts you CAN eat during this weekend’s festivities. For those of you hosting family and friends that have braces, retainers, or Invisalign, we have listed a few of our favorite “safe” foods below.
- Spinach Dip
- Deviled Eggs (hard boiled eggs)
- Mashed potatoes
- Soft cheese platter
- Warm dinner rolls
- Steamed vegetables (e.g. green beans, carrots, broccoli)
- Sandwiches with sliced bread
- Cooked fish
- Soft-cooked chicken
- Marshmallow Peeps……of course!
- Ice Cream
- Chocolate (no hardshells)
- Cupcakes and Muffins
- Raspberries and blueberries dipped in yogurt
Today’s takeaways: Any food that is SOFT, MELTY, SMOOTH, and MOLDABLE we will give the green light AND a double thumbs up for your gentle dental maintenance. If you are uncertain about any foods, we welcome you to call our office any time!
