Summer BBQ and Braces - Hinesly Orthodontics

Summer just around the corner! Here at Hinesly Orthodontics, one of our favorite things about summer is a good BBQ with family and friends! Summer is of course, the defining moment for kids. Everyone is out of school and ready to relax. With relaxation and an abnormal routine, it is easy for kids (or anyone really) with braces to forget two important food categories they’re supposed to avoid: hard foods and sticky foods!

Here are some great and not so great classic summer foods that are great for kids (or anyone really) who has braces.
  • Casseroles 
  • Salads 
  • Jell-O desserts 
  • Chicken 
  • Steak  
  • Hamburgers 
  • Soft fruit

Here are some not so great classic summer foods to stay away from. 
  • Chips
  • Nuts 
  • Beef jerky 
  • Hard pretzels 
  • Rice Krispies treats 
  • Hard/sticky candy (i.e., with caramel or nuts) 
  • Soda
