‘The Braces Cookbook’ by Pamela Waterman

When you have braces, it’s easy to get into a rut, eating the same few braces-friendly meals, day in and day out. 'The Braces Cookbook' by Pamela Waterman offers 50 great comfort food recipes just for braces-wearers and their families!


This book is a great resource if you’re struggling to find recipes that the braces-wearer in your family can eat, and that everyone else will enjoy, too. The recipes in The Braces Cookbook are designed with families in mind, and some are even simple enough for children to help cook.

The updated edition, available here, provides sensitive substitutions for classic favourites, as well as 5 new snack ideas. There are dedicated sections for packing lunches, comfort care, cooking tips, an updated web resources section, entertaining orthodontic trivia, a glossary of orthodontic terms, and reminders about foods that are best avoided when wearing braces.

All told, 'The Braces Cookbook' by Pamela Waterman is a great resource for orthodontic patients and their families.
