Help! DD1(11) got braces for first time during Christmas holidays. Both top and bottom teeth. She is just up to wearing them 24 hours in past few days.
Yesterday, she ate just a tomato for lunch. The rest came back home. She said her teeth were sore, that she didn't want to take out her braces, and that she wanted something that she could eat while she was playing in the school yard.
We are going to try freeze a frube, and sent that tomorrow. She won't eat yogurt unless it is cold.
I am stuck for other ideas - does anybody have any suggestions? Something easy to eat with new braces, and that can be eaten on the go.
Also, since she is eating so little during lunch, short term, would a bottle of chocolate Yazoo be better than a bottle of 40% orange juice/60% water?
At the moment, I think problem is both chewing and stuff getting stuck in her braces. Once she gets used to them, I think it will be the latter.
Unfortunately, she wont drink milk. Only water, orange juice, chocolate milk and hot chocolate. I think I'll try a home made chocolate milk made from chilled hot chocolate. At least that would have plenty of fresh milk in it.
She doesn't like peanut butter. But other dips might work.
