My son just got braces and we’d like your advice on foods to eat in the first few days and then going forward for the next 9-12 months.
The Orthodontist said that the teeth and gums will be sore and sensitive for a few days, so liquids will play a big role in the diet. So we’ve made some extra soup and will be thinning out yogurt with some water to turn it into a lassi drink. And some orange juice as a treat.
But what happens after week? For example, do we stop eating granola in the morning? Or nuts as a snack? or carrot sticks and bell peppers?
My son is a decent eater, so shoot away with helpful suggestions.
Thanks in advance,
