Dear Neha, coconut water is beneficial in every way. It is normal for children to lose their apetite when not well. Make sure he drinks plenty of fluids- milk, water, chicken soup etc. Hope he feels better soon.

Well Neha! My suggestion to you would be its better to give hot home made soups, tea or kawa as AvI mentioned or dal water etc as these tend to give a relief and soothing feeling to the child. During cold u cud see child's nose throat are sore so warm things tend to give soothing effect. U cud also try giving tulsi n ginger water reduced to two spoons after boiling as mentioned by a pro parent in one of the parent talks. It is a good home remedy.

Hi neha! Shikha is right.. Even doctors recommend to give room temperature coconut water. it actually helps in recovering from cold. Give lots of liquids to ur child in cold or fever. u can also try kashmiri kawa which is the best remedy for cold.

Coconut water is very nutritive and gentle. there is no harm at all in letting him have it even during cold. you may just make sure that it's not refrigerated. At room temperature only.
