Easter Ideas: How To Keep Kids With Braces Happy

If you’re worried that braces will prevent your child from enjoying Easter candy, the dental health team at HGS Ortho in Richmond and Port Coquitlam have great news for you! While we don’t recommend any sticky, sugary Easter candy for anyone with braces, here’s a wonderful list of Easter candy that’s safe to enjoy if you have braces:

Chocolate – Chocolate is a great Easter candy for the Easter Bunny to hand out. However, chocolate filled with anything like toffee or caramel should be avoided. Think hollow bunnies and M&Ms.

Baked Goods – Decorated cupcakes and brownies are a great choice if they are nut-free. Baked goods gives you the freedom to experiment with ingredients, so try recipes with reduced-sugar or use honey instead.

Non-Edible Treats – Easter doesn’t have to be just about Easter candy. ┬áPresents make for a great Easter candy replacement and the best part is they’re cavity-free!

We at HGS Ortho in Richmond and Port Coquitlam wish you a happy Easter!
