Please understand that a fever is the body’s way to get rid of germs - it's like we boil water to get rid of germs the body raises its temperature to kill the infection causing germs. As per me we should not try to suppress fever and let the body do its work. In the process we must ensure we support the body. I would suggest you not only feed your child with nourishing food - for the right nutrients and less digestive load, also ensure he/she take complete rest. Please avoid all animal milk switch to almond milk/cashew milk / coconunt milk etc

Pls make a mix of 1 spoonful each of honey, ginger juice, onion juice, half tsp turmeric powder, one pinch black pepper. Give this mix morning and evening. Followed by hot ginger tea. No milk to be given please!

Avoid cooked food. Vegetable juices works well in coughs or fevers. If your kid doesn’t like juices, try feeding raw soft fruits or fruit smoothies when hungry. Do note that these should be no dairy smoothies.  If not hungry, give him/her a glass of lemon water or coconut water and let the body hydrate while it heals.
