What are some good things food wise i could get for my 3 year old nephew who just had his tonsils removed?

He should be able to come home in 1-2 day and I want to make sure the house is stocked with foods he will be able to eat and may help soothe him a bit.

  • NO dairy! Ice cream, yogurt, pudding, milk, cheese, anything dairy or dairy-based is NOT recommended - dairy makes the mucus thicker and harder (thus more painful) to swallow. Smoothies are a good idea but no dairy in them, and serve with a spoon, NOT a straw. NO sippy cups. NO straws, period. 2 of my DDs had theirs out, and they ate a lot of jello (NO red flavors), thin mashed potatoes, lots of various drinks (again, NO red)...applesauce was a big one too to help keep regular, as the pain meds can stop the kiddos up.

  • smoothies!

    1 tbs. PB, 3-4 large strawberries, 1/2 banana, 1/4 avocado. 1/4 cup frozen yogurt. (protein, good fat, vitamins)

    Any mix of fruit and frozen yogurt and add some kale

  • popslices, youguat, pudding,jello, ice cream, icees, bananas, cupcakes, mashed pts, peas and cooked carrots really soft to eat, sandwiches, kids ensure drinks so if he does not eat that will help with what he is missing, soft meats, soup, pancakes are soft and can have for any meal, muffins are soft. Just something soft and even cold should help.
