Can I eat normally when I have braces?
If you have braces, it is best to avoid very hard foods such as lilies, nuts and hard muesli bars that can break the small parts of your braces. Very sticky foods such as toffee and chewy mints can also damage the braces. Hard, crunchy fruit and vegetable such as carrots and apples should be cut into pieces before eating them.
