Thanks for sharing the tips. Just last week, most of my kids were sick and the difficult part was getting them to eat something. Sometimes I just let them eat a fruit or drink fruit juices just so that they would have some nourishment to strengthen their sick body. And when they are better, that's when I start again to feed them more nutritious foods.
