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.
