Babies tend to get extremely cranky and tend to eat less during fever. Lowering of appetite can lead to lesser nutrition in their body which can, in turn, lower their immunity.

 Here are 5 highly nutritive foods that you can try feeding your baby to boost their immunity and help them recover faster.

Boiling a few of the baby’s loved flavours into soups and serving them during fever is a good option. Warm soups made from vegetables can provide the baby with lots of vitamins and nutrients that help boost their immunity and make them feel better.

1. Soups

2. Dal khichdi

Preparing this bowl full of proteins, vitamins, and nutrients helps strengthen the baby and boost their immunity to fight the illness. Add a pinch of salt and turmeric to the dal khichdi. Make sure that you do not add spices and strong flavours to this preparation.

3. Fruit and vegetable puree

Fruit and vegetable puree is another nutritive option to provide the baby with vitamins, nutrients, and antioxidants to fight the illness. Choose healthy vegetable and fruit options like apple, carrot, avocado, green pea, etc.

4. Moong Dal

Feeding warm watery moong dal can help give the baby the strength required to fight the illness.  Moong dal is extremely healthy for babies during illness as it’s easy to digest for babies and also provides essential nutrients to the baby during the illness.

5. Breastmilk

Lastly, the all-time best option, breastmilk. The high nutritive content and the antibodies present in breast milk makes it the best option to feed your baby during fever. It helps boost immunity as well as keeps the baby hydrated.
