    As long as you don't make a toffee casserole with chewing gum for dessert, she should be fine! The pain from braces usually lasts a day or two after they're put on (or tightened/adjusted) so she'll be fine by now. I'm sure she wouldn't mind the special treatment though :)

    It's been a long time since I had my braces, but I remember that whenever they put them on or when I had adjustments, they would always be sore for a day or two. Softer foods are better then. Otherwise, they should be able to eat pretty much anything. Avoid gum and hard candies, though. They can break off the brackets, causing more dental work to be needed.

    I had braces for three years.. and you can pretty much eat anything! Just make sure she brushes her teeth right after and she will be fine. It shouldn't hurt when she eats if she got them a couple weeks ago. After i got them tighted monthly it would hurt for like a day.. and sometimes I would cut my pizza up into bite size pieces, but pretty much anything is fine to eat.

    She can eat anything you make for dinner.. She should just stay away from Sticky foods like Carmel's and gum all the time.. No taffy either.

    If she got it on a few weeks ago, then she should be okay to eat anything. Just don't give her anything thats insanely hard or sticky and you should be fine =)

    If you are still stuck, just ask her dude

    hope I helped

    Pretty much anything except caramel. As long as she brushes and uses the Platypus Flosser, which works great anywhere. You will be fine.
