    There are different definitions of what is "soft" ...depending on the reason.

    It could be for someone who has had dental surgery and requires soft
    This could be for someone with internal dietary health issues, requiring soft foods which could be a different list.
    Likewise, it could be for post-surgery, and again a different reason, and perhaps different definition.
    Or simply could just be for someone with a stomach flu bug, and needs soft til things settle down.

    Best to get your advice from your medical professionals who know all the medical history for yourself or whomever this is for and not risk causing a further problem.

    Good Luck!

    QuiltE has a point however I'll toss out a few anyway sometimes a question s just a question.

    Several years ago I broke my jaw in 3 places and they were wired shut for 10 weeks this is a list of the 2 stages liquids only and then soft foods. The nutrinist at the time said to just make a meal and toss it all in a blender till it could go through a straw.......ewwwwwww the hospital tried that for my breakfast once it was horrifying so this is how I ate

    creamy soups run through a blender
    any home made soup or stew run through a blender (I prefered chicken based ove beef base)
    shakes made with ice cream or frozen yogurt, peanutbutter and a meal replacement liquid like ensure.
    Fruit smoothies with yogurt and protein powders

    Creamy soups not pulverized further, soups cooked till the veggies are mush
    Mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes or just very soft baked potatoes
    Overcooked egg noodles
    soft boiled eggs (aka 3 minute eggs)
    soft scrambled eggs
    beans cooked very soft or refried beans

    It was not a diet with a lot of variety but it worked, I didn't eat soup for many years after that and shakes even longer.

    Homemade soups with small veggies, or you could chop more in a blender. Bread soaked in milk or broth, cooked cereals, puddings, jellos, yogurts. Check out "soft foods" on the internet and get more ideas.

    Thank you every one...I have to have something that doesn't add bulk. Yogurt has the good things for intestines. The doctors said soft like yogurt and liquids. Little ambiguous. The noodles sound good but don't know if blending makes it so it's not bulky. Thanks again.

    Some of the baby foods taste good I always taste before I give it to the baby, NOT PEACHES, cereal, pudding and my all time favorite blueberry buckle, however that comes and goes. It's nice to have around for a quick snack. Our pediatrician said feed the baby what you're having and blender a bit if you need to.
