In brief: Soon

Usually as soon as you can find some food.
They are completely hard when the dentist or hygienist is finished.

In brief: As Soon As You Want

Dental sealants are typically hardened with a light.
So once you leave the dental office, they are completely set.

In brief: Almost immediatly

If you are having a light cured, composite sealant placed (which most are) you can eat right away.
I suggest no really sticky or gummy foods for about 24 hours.
