Answer:

It is best for your son, to eat a light, soft, and cool diet.

Avoid hot liquids for several days. Even though one may be hungry immediately after surgery, it is best to feed slowly to prevent postoperative nausea and vomiting.

It is important to remember that a good overall diet with ample rest promotes healing.

You need not worry about nutritional requirements during the recovery so long as your son, is drinking an adequate amount of fluid.

The difference between a child having a tonsillectomy and an adult having a tonsillectomy is that adult tonsils are much larger than children's and deeper rooted

It is recommended to eat oatmeal, cream of wheat, jello, ensure, pudding and mashed potatoes
