    I had 2 wisdom teeth pulled out yesterday and I'm starving. What soft foods do you recommend? Would I be able to eat porridge/oatmeal?

    Yogurts, milk, soups, mashed bananas, those Muller rice desserts, anything that doesn't require chewing.

    I'm also on a soft food diet at the moment, and would say soup, mashed potatoes, rice, things like mince, and noodles (if you're able to cut them up) are fine. You can also get "meal replacement shakes" which will guarantee you get the right nutrients.

    Hope it gets better soon, I know how much of a downer it is not being able to eat right!

    My bf could manage boiled potato, cheese and grapes cut up into tiny pieces. Anything soft or small enough that you can just swallow basically. Jelly, porridge, soup, pretty much anything put through a blender. Smoothies or milkshakes may help you stay less hungry without eating (or any liquid like soup or gravy). Also avoid anything overly hot or cold as it could be very painful. You might even find baby food (there are some that aren't disgusting) good since it will be like a pre-blended meal.

    Most important is to stay hydrated (I say that cos it can be easy to forget to drink enough when you feel unwell). Dehydration can make you feel hungry, tired and so much more.
    Oh and just a note, I read you shouldn't use straws (or anything else that involves the same sucking movements) for a good while as it can dislodge the colts or something.

    Hope the pain stops soon and you can get back to normal
