What's your child's favorite thing to eat when they have a cold?

My mom always made us chicken soup but I've never really been a huge fan. Any other ideas that I should keep in my back pocket for my son?

  • Mine is a picky eater. If he's not feeling well, he generally doesn't like to eat, but pb&j is almost always one thing we can count on. If he won't eat that though, he really is sick.

  • When they have fevers, all they want is juice and popsicles. When they have a cold, they tend to want yogurts and cheeses. Dunno why, they're odd, my two o.O
