Just because you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment this summer doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice all of your favourite summer treats! Our team at Unionville Orthodontics has created a list of orthodontic-friendly snacks that your whole family can enjoy.
Pasta and Potato salads
Summer barbecues and picnics in the park shouldn’t be allowed without a pasta or potato salad! These summertime favourite salads are perfect for those who are currently undergoing orthodontic treatment. The soft texture makes them easy to eat and they won’t get stuck in your orthodontic appliance. For extra creaminess and nutrients, try adding some ripe avocados to any of your salad recipes!
Unfortunately because of social distancing protocols, your milkshakes can’t bring all the boys to the yard this summer. However, you can safely make one for yourself if you’re undergoing orthodontic treatment! You can choose from delicious summer flavours like banana, strawberry, coconuts and muskmelon! For even more milkshake ideas, check out these 50 recipes from the Food Network! Just don’t add any hard or sticky toppings that could get stuck in your orthodontic appliance!
Fresh Fruit Salad
Even harder fruits such as apples and pears can be made safe for orthodontic appliances if cut up into small pieces! Fresh fruit salad is a delicious and refreshing summer treat that you can indulge in all summer long. Besides, sometimes it’s just too hard to decide on one fruit to snack on! Follow this link for the perfect summer fruit salad.
