If you’re planning on going to camp for a short while, or just taking a day trip out to the lake, it’s obvious that you’ll need to come equipped with plenty of food to keep yourself fueled up and ready for summer fun. Packing lunch doesn’t have to be tedious! As your provider of clear or metal braces in Lafayette, Oubre Orthodontics has put together the following snack and lunch ideas to help you stay full while keeping your braces happy.


Picking the Right Foods

If you plan on being active outdoors all day, a nutritious lunch is essential to fuel your body. Try packing any of the following:


  • Sandwich on soft whole grain bread
  • Cheese sticks
  • Hummus
  • Yogurt
  • Applesauce
  • Fruit cups
  • Creamy peanut butter
  • Nutri-grain bars
  • Pudding
  • Soft cake or cookies


What Are The Best Drinks?

Water is an essential item that you should be packing with every lunch. Regardless if you’ll be having other drinks, make sure to bring water and consume it as much as possible. It’s okay to have sugary drinks like pop, juice or energy drinks, but limit these drinks as much as possible to keep your smile looking great.


Clean Your Braces After Eating

If possible, clean your braces after eating to cleanse your teeth of any leftover food particles that may cause bacteria or lead to cavities. If brushing your teeth is out of possibility, rinse your mouth with water to help rid any food stuck in your teeth. If you take proper care of your teeth while wearing braces, you’ll achieve the optimal results from your orthodontics treatment, and it will lead you to have your beautiful smile!
