I'm looking for healthy and tasty recipes. My 15yr old son broke is jaw and it is now wired for 4-6 weeks. This is all new to us and very scary. thanks,patti
There are an endless number of recipes to blend for your sons liquid diet! The trick is using enough tasy and nutritious liquids to thin the meal. Campbells soups, especially the chuncky version are quite tasty and blend down very easily. Carnation instant breakfast is also a very healthy choice, very similar to ensure in nutrients. Blend this or a protein powder in to every shake you make! I have a website if you need a feeding device for your son www.zip-n-squeeze.com This product replaces syringe feeding and is SO much easier to use and aesthetic too! Also if you go to yahoo and type in orthgnathic support group you will find an endless supply of recovery sites and links. Your son can also chat with others who are in the same situation.
Hope this helps,
