Does child with tonsillitis usually like to eat soft stuff she eats yogurt and pudding a lot wants to eat other food but scared?

Does child with tonsillitis usually like to eat soft stuff she eats yogurt and pudding a lot wants to eat other food but scared?

Tonsillitis diet: Indeed kids (and adults too for that matter) prefer soft foods when the throat hurts a lot. Push fluids, and concentrate on protein containing foods like the yogurt she is eating, scrambled eggs, soups, etc. If it goes on for more than a few days, then worry, but go with the flow for a couple of days when she's not feeling well. As throat symptoms improve, add in other foods. ...Read more

Just had strange bm. It was %100 smooth, syrupy but thicker, like chocolate pudding. (sorry for weird comparison) not foul smelling. PMSing, related?

Any symptoms?: One issue to be concerned would be if the stool had blood in it. It could be altered blood. If you have a similar bowel movement again, you should collect part of the specimen for testing for blood. You may get a card from your doctor that would make the process easier.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.

Is it ok for toddler to eat a lot of tougher and pudding she has tonsillitis and only wants that?

It's fine!: When a toddler has tonsillitis or other causes of sore throat, let them eat whatever is comfortable.

If it goes on for more than 4-5 days, then have child rechecked to make sure infection is improving. ...Read more

I swallowed the plastic coating of black pudding. I swallowed quite an amount. Google black pudding if you do not know what it is. Will I be ok?

Likely yes: I'm not sure by what you mean "quite an amount". Normally the plastic would be eliminated in your stool. It's not likely to be digested. Unless you ate a huge amount wouldn't think you would have a problem with obstruction of the bowel. Toxicity from the plastic likely minimal. If no abdominal pain or other difficulty it should pass normally in your stool ...Read more
