When you have a fever, you don't want to eat anything. This is because the body's core temperature rises as a result of the fever, causing the enzymes to curdle or become denatured, depending on whether they are proteins or not. Enzymes are proteins that denature or coagulate when heated, similar to the protein in egg white. In the same way, enzymes coagulate and are unable to perform their normal function. Furthermore, taste acuity is lost due to the side effects of antibiotics and other medications that cause a loss of taste and smell. Even the sight or smell of food can make one feel sick.

Liquids:

Tender coconut water, lemon water, buttermilk, fruit juices, soups, sorbets, squashes, ice lollies, and, most importantly, water will be easily digested and will keep you hydrated as the body temperature rises.

Boiled Vegetables:

Soft-boiled vegetables, such as potatoes, carrots, pumpkin, and gourds, are much better tolerated and provide the necessary vitamins and minerals as well as calories. Steaming vegetables achieves this goal by cooking them until they are no longer raw but still bright and crisp.

Fruit yogurt or plain curd:

Curd is a predigested food that does not require enzymes to digest and provides the body with the necessary proteins and calcium. Because it is bland, it does not make you feel nauseous like other protein-rich foods can.

Rice that has been softly boiled and other rice products:

Rice is a carbohydrate that is easily digestible and can be consumed to provide energy to the body. It's also bland, and the water it produces can be used to make hydrating beverages. It can also help with diarrhea and loose stools. Rice should be slightly overcooked and must be cooked just before serving.

These foods can be easily consumed even if you have loose stools, cough, cold, or a fever. The only restriction is that they should not be kept cold or refrigerated. It is a myth that curd should not be consumed if one has a cold or cough. Curd does not cause a cold; however, if it is kept refrigerated, it may contribute to coughing.

 When you have a cold cough and a fever, stay away from the cold and refrigerate foods and drinks. Curd, as a predigested food, will be more easily absorbed by the body than milk because it does not require enzymes to digest.

When you have a fever, there are five foods you should avoid at all costs:

·        foods with a strong flavor

·        foods that have been fried

·        foods with a spicy

·        Carbonated beverages

·        Carbonated beverages

These should be avoided as much as possible because they can cause nausea, acidity, and interfere with other foods' digestion. Furthermore, they will obstruct the absorption of medicines, reducing their effectiveness.
