For a cough and cold, you can give your child plenty of warm fluids. You may give him/her 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.
