Answer:
When child is having infection, then normally they are put on antibiotic dose which weakens the immune system plus kills healthy bacteria from intestine. All this results in poor appetite. So check with your doctor if he/she can give age appropriate probiotic supplements. Foods like home-made dahi or probiotic yogurt available in market is also good to bring back the appetite. Do not worry its temporary.
