When I got my braces I liked ice cream, jello and mashed potatoes (the potatoes have to be very smooth).

Gosh, if he has no food restrictions the possibilities are endless. I'd say home made chicken soup with meat bawls or is it bolls or balls, well what ever the spelling. Get the whole or cut up chicken. Use dark meat and bones to make soup. Put the white meat thru the meat grinder, if you do not have use food processor, but meat grinder is preferred, grind together with one small onion, and 1-2 slices of white bread (soaked in called water and squeezed). Add 1 large egg, mix everything together. Salt and pepper to taste. Form small bawls (SP?), maybe 3/4". When soup boils and you pick off the dirty foam on the top ad them in cook like you would normally cook chicken soup. Serve. Personally, I like to serve it with a spoon or two of rice, added right into the plate. Rice cook separately. This is very nutritious meal. It will have protein and veggies, and it is easy to swallow, practically with out chewing.

That is what our son ate for the first week after he had his braces

Eggs? Scrambled or soft boiled?

i'm with that carnation breakfast- nourishing & plenty of vitamins/minerals. ensure is an option, 'cept not quite so tasty. other than that, maybe give your kiddo shakes or icecream, potatoes of many sorts, overcooked pasta, cheesecake, cooked cereals.....
i used to love frozen fruit with mine cause it was cold though i didn't consume that.

Does he like baked potatoes "all the way"? That could be a soup option too - finely mincing the bacon and other "stuff" - oh, except no cheese!

Now my jaws hurt for him!!!!!!

A friend of mine many years ago worked at a nursing home. On hotdog night he would grind up everything (individually) and layer the bun on the bottom, next the dog - cut into bun shapes and serve condiments on the side. I guess if he's really desperate for a hotdog that would work

I'm glad you like the idea, now just go and make it!

You know what they call the chicken soup - Jewish Penecilin.

Some doctor, btw, did a special recearch and proove that, in fact, chicken soup has all kind of nutritions that help with healing process, whatever the sickness might have been. I guess it helps the body regain the strenth(sp?).
