Diet In Fever – Sample Menu Plan For a Day


HELLO FRIENDS. FEVER IS VERY COMMON, SPECIALLY IN RAINY SEASON, SPECIALLY SEEN IN CHILDREN
AND THOSE WHO HAVE POOR OR WEEK IMMUNITY. BUT TO TELL YOU, FEVER IS NOT A DISEASE BY
ITSELF. FEVER IS YOUR BODY’S REACTION TO FIGHT AGAINST CERTAIN INFECTION OR SICKNESS. FEVER
GIVES YOU SYMPTOMS LIKE LACK OF APPETITE, LACK OF INTEREST, WEAKNESS, POOR DIGESTION.
SO SYMPTOMS SHOULD BE TREATED WITH THE PROPER DIET AND EVEN TO REPLENISH THE LOSS OF
FLUIDS WHICH OCCURS DURING FEVER DUE TO HIGH TEMPERATURES, NEEDS TO BE TREATED OR NEED TO
BE TAKEN CARE THROUGH YOUR DIET. SO YOUR DIET SHOULD BE RICH IN PROTEIN, RICH IN FLUIDS, RICH IN
VITAMINS LIKE VITAMIN C WHICH HELPS RECOVERY, OMEGA 3 FATS WHICH AGAIN BOOST YOUR IMMUNITY
AND ALONG WITH THESE FOODS, YOUR DIET SHOULD BE SOFT IN CONSISTENCY, SHOULD BE VERY
PALATABLE BECAUSE YOUR TASTE BUDS NEEDS SOMETHING WHICH IS VERY INTERESTING DURING
FEVER TO IMPROVE YOUR INTAKE. SO LETS SEE SOME FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS THROUGH THIS DIET
CHART. WHEN YOU WAKE UP, YOU CAN HAVE A CUP OF HERBAL TEA. FOR MAKING HERBAL TEA, YOU CAN
USE GINGER, TULSI, CINNAMON POWDER, LEMON GRASS. THESE HERBS ARE HELPFUL FOR RELIEVING
COUGH AND ALSO YOU FEEL BETTER AFTER TAKING A CUP OF HERBAL TEA. IN BREAKFAST, YOU CAN HAVE
SOME SOFT FOOD LIKE SUJI UPMA OR RAVA UPMA. YOU CAN ALSO HAVE SOME RAGI PORRIDGE OR KHEER
WITH MILK. THIS WILL GIVE YOU PROTEINS AS WELL AS THESE FOODS ARE EASY FOR DIGESTION.
WITH BREAKFAST YOU CAN HAVE ANY SOFT FRUIT LIKE BANANA OR PAPAYA. IN MID MORNING, YOU CAN
HAVE A GLASS OF COCONUT WATER AS WE SAY YOU NEED LOT OF FLUIDS DURING YOUR FEVER. IN LUNCH,
YOU CAN HAVE SOFT KHICHADI MADE UP OF MOONG DAL. YOU CAN ALSO HAVE SOME FLAXSEED
CHUTNEY. THIS WILL GIVE YOU A GOOD TASTE TO YOUR TASTE
BUDS BECAUSE IN FEVER, YOUR TASTE BUDS ARE SLIGHTLY WEAKER, YOU DON”T FEEL LIKE EATING
BECAUSE OF FEVER, HIGH TEMPERATURE AND YOU NEED SOMETHING TASTY TO ACCOMPANY WITH
YOUR MEALS. YOU CAN ALSO HAVE A BOWL OF SOUP WHEREIN YOU CAN HAVE VEGETABLE SOUP. THOSE
WHO ARE NON-VEGETARIAN CAN HAVE A BOWL OF CHICKEN OR BROTH WHICH IS EASY FOR DIGESTION
AND ALSO HELPS RELIEF FEVER. BETWEEN YOUR LUNCH AND EVENING SNACKS, YOU CAN AGAIN HAVE
A CUP OF HERBAL TEA OR ELSE YOU CAN HAVE A GLASS OF LIME WATER OR KOKUM WATER OR YOU
CAN ALSO HAVE ANY FRESHLY MADE FRUIT JUICE. IF YOU HAVE SORE THROAT, THEN AVOID LIME WATER
AND CITRUS FRUITS, BUT IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A SORETHROAT AND YOU HAVE FEVER, YOU CAN HAVE
SPECIALLY THE FRUITS WHICH ARE CITRUS IN NATURE, THOSE WHO SOUR IN TASTE LIKE LIME
WATER OR ORANGE JUICE, SWEET LIME JUICE BECAUSE VITAMIN C HELPS IN RECOVERY. IN THE
EVENING SNACKS, YOU CAN HAVE BOWL OF SAGO KANJI OR OATS KANJI. YOU CAN ALSO ACCOMPANY
THIS WITH A HANDFUL OF BLACK CURRENTS OR SOAKED FIGS. WHICH WILL GIVE YOU INSTANT
ENERGY. IN THE DINNER, IF YOU ARE A NON – VEGETARIAN, YOU CAN HAVE A BOILED EGG. YOU CAN
ALSO HAVE A BOILED POTATO WITH BLACK SALT, BLACK PEPPER AND LIME. BOILED POTATO AGAIN
GIVES YOU INSTANT ENERGY. ALL THESE HERBS LIKE BLACK PEPPER WILL BE HELPFUL IN RELIEVING
COUGH. AT BED TIME, YOU CAN HAVE A GLASS OF WARM MILK. AND ITS GOOD TO ADD A PINCH OF
TURMERIC POWDER TO YOUR MILK. TURMERIC IS AGAIN A MEDICINAL HERB OR SPICE WHICH HELPS
COUGH RELATED SYMPTOMS. THE TIPS INCLUDE, YOU HAVE TO CONSUME SMALL BUT FREQUENT
MEALS THROUGHOUT THE DAY. FOODS RICH IN VITAMIN E AND VITAMIN C SHOULD BE CONSUMED,
BECAUSE THEY HELP RECOVERY. SUCH FOODS INCLUDE ALL CITRUS FRUITS, AMLA. VITAMIN E
FOODS INCLUDE ALL NUTS AND OIL SEEDS. THESE FOODS WILL GIVE YOU INSTANT ENERGY AS WELL AS
THEY ARE PACKED WITH OTHER NUTRIENTS. AVOID OUTSIDE FOOD AND WATER IN ANY CASE.
THIS CAN AGGRAVATE THE INFECTION. VEGETARIAN FOOD IS ALWAYS PREFERRED OVER
NON – VEGETARIAN FOOD. SPECIALLY RED MEAT. READ MEAT IS DIFFICULT TO DIGEST. IF AT ALL YOU
WANT TO HAVE NON – VEGETARIAN FOOD, PREFER A BOILED EGG OR CHICKEN SOUP WHICH WILL HELP
YOU COME OUT OF FEVER. AVOID JUNK FOOD, OILY AND SPICY FOOD. SPECIALLY CARBONATED
BEVERAGES AND DRINKS. DON’T PRESUME THAT THESE DRINKS WILL REPLENISH FLUIDS,
RATHER THESE FLUIDS OR THESE DRINKS WILL TAKE AWAY THE BODY FLUIDS. KEEP YOUR MEALS AS LIGHT
AS POSSIBLE. YOUR DIGESTIVE SYSTEM IS COMPTOMIZE DURING FEVER. SO PREFER WELL
COOKED, SOFT FOOD OVER RAW FOOD. LAST BUT NOT THE LEAST, DRINK PLENTY OF FLUIDS INCLUDING
WATER. PREFER BOILED AND COOLED WATER. AROUND 4 -5 LITERS OF WATER IS ESSENTIAL
THROUGHOUT THE DAY TO KEEP YOUR BODY WELL HYDRATED. SO THESE WERE COMMON DIETARY
RECOMMENDATIONS TO FOLLOW DURING YOU HAVE FEVER. IT IS VERY IMPORTANT TO TAKE ADEQUATE
REST WITH A PROPER DIET. IT IS ALSO IMPORTANT TO SEE A DOCTOR SPECIALLY IN CASE OF CHILDREN AND
SPECIALLY IF YOUR FEVER GOES BEYOND 101 OR 102 DEGREES. IF YOU HAVE ANY ACCOMPANYING
SYMPTOMS LIKE VOMITING, NAUSEA, DIARRHEA, SEVER CHILLS, YOU SHOULD SEE YOUR DOCTOR
IMMEDIATELY. FOR MORE INFORMATION, YOU CAN GET IN TOUCH WITH US THROUGH OUR OUR WEBSITE
