Your English is perfectly understandable! You wouldn't want to see my French ...

My heart goes out. Right off the top of my head, I remember reading that sweet potatoes with buttermilk is a very nutritious combination. They can be pureed together to a mashed potato, or even soup consistency for a very high-nutrition meal. One thing that becomes difficult with people who have difficulty eating can be severe constipation, getting that fiber in without chewing is hard, so consider a fiber drink. Yogurt is good, as well. Keep us up to date.

we made a soup for dad when he had cancer treatments and had trouble eating.

We simmered potatoes, carrots, and broccoli in low sodium chicken broth until quite mushy, added some cream and veal baby food, and pureed the lot. It was very tasty actually and very nutritious. We did not add any salt or pepper as Dad was sensitive to it at that point. But potato makes a great base for cream soups or purees which are easy to eat.

(Yes we could have reduced our own veal shoulder but time was an issue)
