  • as long as he's drinking, it's fine...kids know when they should and shouldn't eat...you don't want him to get sick...but try some jello or applesauce. Hydration is more important than food...

  • ensure drinks, jello, applesauce, pudding, ice cream, mashed pts, soup, gaterade, frozen yoguat, very soft noodles like the lipton kind in the bag, pancakes might be soft, just foods that will melt in the mouth or even foods easy to swallow.

  • Pediasure or the equivalent. Try different flavors or making milk shakes out of them.
