MEALS FOR KIDS WITH BRACES?

Rylee's braces are new and her mouth is tender. Anyone have any great brace-friendly recipes they used when their kids' mouths were sore?

Thanks!

Custard is good -- basically eggs and milk. It's cool and smooth. Goes down easily bypassing the teeth. At least she'll get some protein and calcium (good for those bypassed teeth).

I did some checking, Lodi, and came up with soups, mashed potatoes, pasta, pudding/custard, ice cream or any food that is soft. Avoid hard and sticky foods.

I ate whatever I wanted when I had braces, of course they came off a few times, especially with those Charleston Chews, lol. If I can remember anything with a recipe I'll be sure to post. Welcome back Lodi!

Malts and shakes...easy to make nutritional with fruits and veggies and tasty to individual likes.

Hi Jeremy!

I'm trying to fix family meals that are also brace friendly. I know the kids and I would probably be happy if we all sat down at the table and had big slurpy milkshakes in front of us, but I think Scott might give me the stink eye. So I'm looking for actual meal ideas. She's had the braces for about 2 weeks. I'm out of good ideas and I hate getting into a dinner rut so keep the great ideas coming.

My son recently had his wisdom teeth out so i made him shakes with frozen yogurt and chocolate Ensure. A banana would be good too.

I still have a little instant chicken noodle soup left over from my 2001 tonsillectomy.

Soup and ice cream.

I won't buy cookbooks - I choose to troll the web or get my recipes from friends. Although there is one in the 2nd book that catches my eye - Creamed Chicken Puffs. yum! But I found a recipe for it on the web already. Too bad I just got back from the grocery store.
