  • Ice cream! thats all I can think of! None of my family was born with tonsils so IDK what to do in that situation! mashed potatoes maybe?

  • Dairy products stick to the sores left behind after the tonsils are removed. Broths, jello, popsicles, etc. Advance as tolerated, but thicker foods like ice cream, pudding, yogurt should wait about a week or so. I learned that the hard way.

  • Don't pass up a great opportunity to eat all the ice cream, sherbet, sorbet, gellato that you can!
