I've had broken jaw because of an accident.
I've had my jaws shut wired together.

I only can drink. Until now I found milk mixed with some child cocoa powder (Nestle) the most nutritive meal.
I also drink soup and tea.

If you goes through similar experiences and have other ideas please help.

  • this was my diet for most of the 6 weeks i had my jaws wired. i just got them off a few days ago. the best way to eat foods that you can't slurp is taking a straw and sipping through the back of your mouth. theres more holes there so it's easier that way. daily foods you can eat1. ensure x 2 a day (nutritional drink)2. jello (almost no calories, but fills you up)3. pudding4. strained porridge/creamy soups5. protein mixs 6. tea with honey7. shakes/smoothieswhat i learned though, is you can basically puree almost any soft food. It's not going to taste the same as usual because the TEXTURE is really off, but ive eaten alot of different stuff after i got desperate.ive tried-pureed ramen and egg-blended apples and sausages-bbq chicken blended with beerafter a few weeks, your going to try different things too man.good luck

  • Hi Korea,I have 2 and a half weeks with my mouth wired shut.I'm still a little bit afraid not to throw up. Because of that I tried to avoid puree at the beginning.Now I use soup with chicken and carrot blended together.Biscuits blended with tee and honey.Orange + Kiwi juice + honey.Milk with bananas.And a lot of milk without bananas.Also I drank yogurt.Finally I must admit that you are more, more inventive.I'm from Romania (Dracula's :eek: country). :DThanks for Reply.
