My sons temp fillings

Hello! My son who is almost 6 years old, recently had some temporary fillings put in 2 of his teeth to keep the cavities from getting worse before they fall out. We were told to avoid super sticky foods. My husband and I have had a debate going on since then. Does this include kids fruit snacks? I'm thinking it does. Thanks for your help!

I would put fruit snacks (as in the kind that's similar to gummy bears) as a sticky snack.  Things like caramel, starbursts, or gum would be considered sticky.  When in doubt, probably best to avoid it.
