Thanksgiving 2019! This is a holiday to be thankful for! Almost all of your traditional favorites are perfect for family members with braces.
Offer soft food options such as silky cheeses and deviled eggs instead of crunchy vegetables, chips, and nuts.
Turkey is a required dish on many tables, and no need to miss out! Just make sure pieces are bite-size and off the bone. Creamy mashed potatoes and gravy and jellied cranberry sauce are also braces-friendly traditions. Any cooked vegetable should be fine, but do cut the corn from the cob first. Dressing is a great side dish if your child avoids any crunchy tops and edges, as are soft, nut-free rolls and muffins.
Pumpkin pie, cheesecake, and apple pie with ice cream are all safe (and delicious) choices. Leave the pecan pie, caramel sauce, and anything nutty or chewy off your childâ€™s menu. And remember to brush and floss carefully after the feast!
As always, please contact us if you have any questions regarding wearing braces!
