Healthy Summer Treats for Kids Undergoing Orthodontic Treatment

Healthy Summer Treats for Kids Undergoing Orthodontic Treatment

The sun is shining, the weather is warm and summer is officially in full bloom! Now that we have finally made it to a well-deserved summer, we want to help you treat your child to a few summertime snacks that are safe to eat with orthodontic appliances!

Fruit Popsicles

Fruit popsicles are an orthodontic-friendly treat that your child can enjoy this summer! In fact, if your child is experiencing any inflammation or swelling due to their orthodontic treatment, the cold provided by fruit popsicles can help reduce any irritation. Check out Jessica Gavin’s blog post to choose from recipes like strawberry, watermelon, lemon, and coconut flavoured fruit popsicles!

Macaroni Salad 

Macaroni salad is a summertime go-to for barbeques, picnics and days at the beach. Thankfully this summer treat is also completely safe for kids undergoing orthodontic treatment! The soft texture of the macaroni is perfect for orthodontics and will be easy for your child to eat. Try adding soft and nutritious avocados to your macaroni salad recipe for extra creaminess!

Lemon Pudding 

Treat your child to a refreshing bowl of lemon pudding this summer! Pudding is a great snack to have with orthodontic appliances because of the liquidy nature. To make this dish extra special for your little one, try adding some whipped cream and fresh berries as toppings. Our favourite lemon pudding recipe is available on the Food Network’s website!
