Temp Soft Food Diet

Were just about to head out the door.My son has to have his wisdom teeth removed this morning..
After surgery they recommend that he eats with a spoon a soft food diet for a few days.We have to try to avoid *dry socket* and food particles getting past the stitches.

He wants vanilla shakes,that's fine,but I think he needs something a lil more substantial then that..Broth is made..Soups on...I'm really out of ideas and a tad stressed..Anesthesia gives me the jitters..
If anyone has any suggestions I'd appreciate it.
Thanks.
Munky.

Puddings are nice, too. Get some ensure or something like that if you are concerned about nutrients. Otherwise, a multi vitamin and shakes.... ha!

I'm sure they will tell him (and you) this but sucking is NOT advised. If he has the shakes, make sure he eats with a spoon - not the straw. I had my wisdom teeth pulled 20 years ago and still remember the frustration of dry sockets ... avoid the straw!
Pureed fruit would be yummy - avoid strawberries but melons would be great with some wheat germ or carnation breakfast added for nutrients and protein.
He'll be fine (and so will you!)! Let us know how it goes ...

yes, I forgot about the straw!! I had mine removed 30 years ago, not a great experience. I know other kids who have had theirs removed recently and they did just fine.

I agree with Wyogal. Puddings will help, ensure, carnation instant breakfast, even possibly slimfast will do the trick if you're worried about nutrition issues. Broth is good...but try to switch it up and not stick to one thing. I once had a procedure done where I could only have clear liquids, and I cannot eat broth or jello to this day! :(

He might like some mashed/whipped potatoes and gravy or some soft scrambled eggs with cheese. I think those nutritional drinks taste pretty bad.

All food is soft food if you have a blender. Baby foods are good too.
