Feeding A Sick Toddler

Feeding A Sick Toddler

It feels like we are in the thick of cold season and most kids end up getting sick during the colder weather. When your little one is fighting a cold, food is usually the last thing on their mind. I always used to stress out about my son not eating but time has taught me that it's ok and completely normal! Children often lose their appetite when they are sick but will always make up for it after!

 

I aim to implement the following and find this works best to help him build up his strength.

 

 

1. HYDRATION

 

This is the most important! Encourage them to drink as much as possible and offer hydrating fruits and veggies such as cucumber, watermelon, courgette, celery, strawberries, pineapples and peaches.

 

2. Serve honey

 

Honey contains high antibacterial properties and antimicrobial compounds to suppress coughs and it also boosts the immune system. In the UK, the NHS (national health service) now actually recommend honey for coughs.

It is important to note that honey is not suitable for under 1’s.

 

3. Add healing spices to smoothies and meals/snacks

Turmeric is one of the best known spices for fighting colds and can be added to smoothies or cooking.

Ginger is superb for inflammation and I usually add a little extra when my son is unwell or recovering from a cold. It can also work well in smoothies!

Garlic is naturally immune boosting and has been used to help fight colds for centuries and again can be added to most meals.

4. Load up on Vitamin C

    Traditionally oranges always come to mind, however broccoli, bell peppers and strawberries are also a superb source of vitamin C.

     

    5. Healthy Fat

      Where possible add in high calorie, good fats to maximise every mouthful.

       

      6. Protein

       

      Add protein where possible, this can be in the form of crushed nuts and seeds sprinkled over food or added to smoothies.

      Note: no whole nuts or seeds for under 5’s.

       

      Disclaimer: This post is not intended to replace medical advice. If you are concerned your child is unwell or dehydrated seek medical as soon as possible.

       

      Sick Toddler Recipes

      Here are my go to recipes that I turn to time and time again when my son is feeling unwell.

       

      1. Turmeric milk

       

      Turmeric Milk (traditionally known as haldi doodh) is an ancient Ayurvedic drink that's known for it's anti-inflammatory properties. It is a delicious, comforting and nourishing drink that comes together in minutes.

        2. Khichdi

         

        Khichdi is a one pot Indian dish that combines rice, lentils and healing spices into a porridge like consistency. Highly revered in Ayurvedic medicine, it is the perfect meal for when one is feeling poorly or you just need some serious comfort food! It’s packed with protein, wholesome, nourishing ingredients and is easy to digest.

         

          3. Immune Boosting Smoothie

           

          This anti inflammatory and immune boosting smoothie is so hydrating and packed with vitamins and nutrients. It is perfect to help defend against coughs and colds.

           

            4. Kefir Smoothie

             

            This easy, good for your gut smoothie is so simple to make and is packed with wholesome and nourishing ingredients, perfect for when your little ones have been under the weather.

             

               

              5. Strawberry Milkshake

               

              Loaded with vitamin C, protein and hydrating, this smoothie is perfect for colds and coughs.

               

                This smoothie is perfect for those little ones struggling with drinking water as it packs in lots of hydration.
