Recipes and food ideas picky 2 year old after tonsils removed

Agent807 | May 2, 201710:08 AM     4

My two year old just had his tonsils out and I'm out of food options. I hope you guys can give me some ideas. This kid is SO PICKY regardless of the surgery. He hates fruits (texture thing) and cooked vegetables. Anything creamy or "baby food" texture. He's not eating anything... And it's been 5 days!!! I figure... If he's hungry the kids will eat... Nope! Not this ball of stubborn... This is what I've tried and he WONT eat:
Ice cream, popcycles, pudding (tried all flavors), Jello, soups, yogurt, milkshakes, slurpees, (he loves PB&Js and he won't touch that either), mashed potatoes, Mac and cheese, and warm cereal. Oh and I tried pancakes and eggs too.. won't touch it....
Any opinions... I've been trying that of yes hungry, he'll eat anything method... And no I'm just frightened... Thanks for your help!!!
