Well, it is very difficult, but here are some helpfull tips, (You get used to it after a while)

Cut up your food into smaller pieces then you normally would, so you dont have to chew as much. When you put the food inside your mouth, chew with only one side, and one side only, because if you keep going bakc and forth with the chewing on differant sides, it's easier for the food get stuck in your expander.

When the food is all chewed up, kinda push it back to the back of your mouth then swallow right away, yes it is going to be hard, but again, you will get used to it.

Wash it down with your drink :) Hope I helped somewhat.

I had an expander when i was younger, and I ate a lot... The only thing that changed for me is stringy food like spinach getting stuck, but you can simply pull it out. The other thing that bothered me is when i had to put the key in to open it up more. It was a little painful to chew right after loosening but it was bareable.

What CAN you eat and NOT eat with an expander?

A lot of people say you can't eat things with an expander, but really, you can eat anything. The problem is, you're going to have to deal with it when you start choking, or have something stuck in your expander. I just got an expander, and I remember the list of things you shouldn't eat (Not all of it) No gum, no popcorn, no granola bars, no apples or veggies (Cut them into small pieces) No chewy candy, like Laffy Taffy, Skittles, Starrburst, Suckers, so practically, that means no candy. No Spaghetti either. You might lose weight, but if you're not looking forward to that, Here are things you can eat. Mashed patatoes :) Yogurt :) Pizza :D Pasta :| Grilled Chese :| Cake :D Cookies :D Jello:) Pudding :( and soup :) So yeah.
