Q:

My 5 year old has got typhoid. Can anyone tell what care should I take doctor medicine are going on and diet is according to doctors advice? #momabc #bbcreatorsclub



Hi Himali ! Isssh! Typhoid can be very tiring on the baby's body. Typically the diet should be low on oil & ghee & masala. Zero raw foods. boiled water. Increase cooked protein intake to help with WBC count. You can try feeding the baby wheat grass juice for platelet counts.

Can I give her apple and banana as fruits

when you are already taking the medications we should only follow the diet precaution and give more and more fluids to your baby and sure that you are giving RO purified water and also so you can try having coconut juice daily also please share the medications you are taking

Take care of her Himali, I remember getting one when i was in college, difficult phase. Include lot of moon dal in her food, moong dal sambhar , moong dal in vegetables. Give her steamed food like idly, dosa(dont add oil). Cook rice , potatoes and rice together with little salt.

My her typhoid is very mild and on initial stage. She doesn't have fever. It was just that she complained of stomach pain since one or two days so I got her tested. So for how many days should I have diet restrictions for her. I know in typhoid we can't give wheat

Having normal diet is good you can keep that diet as long as you can it will help to recover the baby even after everything is normal you should continue it for a month or so you can add ghee instead of oil the only thing you need to take care is that baby does not eat any kind of street food
