Q:

what food to give when baby is suffering from throat infection..she is of 21mths



Sonali Shivlani pl advise

normally liquids would be best as its easy to swallow.. also very soft khichdi.

warm soup and soft foods. avoid sour curd. nothing cold or sour or spicy. i always make thin  sooji halwa, butter rice, choori - which is hand mashed roti in hot ghee, home made chicken  soup. take care. hope baby feels better soon. ps will try and post the chicken soup recipe today for u. Harneet Khurana

thnku so much asha chaudhry

avoid sour and acidic food, citrus juices and fruits

avoid any food that may be citrus in nature. go bland for some days. warm soups may also help.

give turmeric milk... rava upma.. soups..

When baby is unwell especially when the throat or the respiratory system is involved they are not very keen to eat much. They prefer to drink instead. Offer different variety of soup, juices, milk etc for a few days till the baby settles down. Other foods can be offered as per baby's preference.

avoid cold , citrus and oily food.

You can give Luke warm meals like sheera,  karada,  soup,  besan wala dhood, khichaddi with ghee,  Daliya etc.  Avoid oily and spicy food.
