Mouth sores are so painful they can make eating and drinking hot or cold foods extremely difficult. Try eating foods at room temperature or slightly warm and eat slowly.
Stay away from acidic foods and spicy foods and avoid sharp and crunchy foods as even the softest of foods can be difficult to eat. Cut your food into small pieces or puree foods making them easy to swallow, such as custards, rice, eggs, porridge, and soups. It’s amazing how a meal of meat and vegetables can be made easier to eat with a quick fizz in the food processor. Liquid foods such as soups and smoothies are fantastic options. A straw for drinking may help keep liquids away from sore areas in your mouth. Remember WARM, you don’t want to burn your mouth too.
If family and friends want to help, soup that you can freeze in small portions in a great option too, especially during these cold Winter months.
