What're the best foods can my 4yr old with the flu eat?

Influenza: As the flu is accompanied by fever, offering lots of liquids will be the best treatment. Oftentimes, sick children lose their appetite so feed your child whatever s/he likes and can tolerate. Don't worry if s/he does not eat well, just maintain good hydration.
