Hi, please ask Ur paediatrician if there are any other ways of giving medicine other than oral as Ur baby should take medicine regularly.And coming to food, give her more liquids like juices if she likes.Try little quantity like 5 to 10 ml every 20 min like that.He is not eating because his tongue might have become tasteless due to medicine.So try some soups, liquids like that.He will be alright once he gets little energy.I had experienced this situation but not because of typhoid. Curd rice also u can try slowly
