When your child is sick, follow the advice of your doctor (of course). In addition, you can plan to feed your baby or toddler nourishing meals to promote a speedy recovery. Along with any medicine the doctor may prescribe, consider serving the following foods when your child (over age 1) isn’t feeling well:
  • For a cold: Chicken soup (the old standby)

  • For a fever: Oatmeal and juices

  • For a sore throat: Flavored gelatin and fruit smoothies

  • For a stomachache: Bananas, rice, apples, and toast (dry), also known as the B.R.A.T. diet
