WHAT YOU CAN AND SHOULDN’T EAT WITH BRACES?
Many people need to know what they can eat when they get braces. Soon you will be eating popcorn and snacking on tortilla chips again in no time once you get them off! However, before you can start enjoying some of the treats you love, you will need to take special care to avoid any foods that could damage your new appliances. Here’s an infographic from Victoria BC orthodontist Dr. Evan Ayers.
Visual Communication - 75%

This infographic provides guidance for people who need to know what foods to avoid eating while wearing braces. The content of this infographic is fairly straightforward. The only point of confusion is that there are two sections, "What You Shouldn't Eat" and "What You Can Eat." Since neither of these lists are exhaustive, it might be helpful for the reader to have general descriptions of the characteristics of foods that are/aren't okay (i.e. soft, crunchy, etc.) Then, the specific foods listed could function as examples and not appear to be a full list. The icons for each food are clearly recognizable, although some are rendered with thick black outlines and some are not. The header illustration also seems out of proportion, with a very small apple and a very large set of teeth. Overall, the content is not too wordy and there's a good balance between text and visual elements, but style inconsistency and inadequate framing of the information undermine the quality. We'd give this a D.
