Lean protien, **cooked** fruits and veges - a well balanced diet is best. At this point - as damaged as his colon is - make sure fruits and veges are cooked to fork tender - meaning you can smash them with a fork with no resistance.
Some people use the baby food meant for older babies - stage 3 I believe????
