Answer:
For a cough and cold, you can give your son plenty of warm fluids. You may give him bone broth (if you are a non-vegetarian). For vegetarians, clear vegetable soups will do the trick. Also, hot rasam (a South Indian dish of watery consistency taken with rice) made with garlic, jeera and turmeric will work wonders for a cold. Warm water with one teaspoon of honey mixed with ginger juice helps soothe a sore throat too. You should focus on increasing immunity of your child. Make sure she has a balanced diet intake. This will make him stronger and healthier. Also, make her have seasonal fruits rich in Vitamin C. Include steam inhalation when he is feeling congested. This helps feel better.
