TeaTotaler Posted January 28, 2011 Share Posted January 28, 2011 Ds who turned 13 about a month ago got braces put on his upper and lower teeth yesterday. He's done pretty well - had soup for lunch and dinner yesterday. Of course, he's pretty disappointed with all list of foods on the "no-no" list. I think the hardest part is going to be snacks. No carrots, apples, nuts, popcorn etc. I may have to shred the carrots. I have absolutely no experience with braces. DH had them when he was younger. Any survival tips would be helpful. A funny story: Ds plays in a local fiddling group. They have a few outfits depending on the weather. One of their options is white shirt, black pants with turquoise and yellow accessories. Well, he is one of 2 boys in the group of 13 members. The girls have no problem coming up with scarves, tights etc to accessorize. They've been giving ds a hard time about finding a turquoise fedora. Sooooo, yesterday at the ortho's office he requested turquoise bands for his top teeth and yellow bands for the bottom. If he can keep up the smiling while playing violin he is all set :-) Glad he has not lost his sense of humor!! What are some healthy snacks that your kids in braces eat?
