Winter Croup? This Is What You Should Eat!

Have you caught winter cold? Check out our list of what to eat and what to avoid if you’re one of those affected.

Winter croup is something you can catch all year round, but it’s most common between November and April. If you are one of those affected, it can be useful to know what to eat – and what to avoid – when your stomach is particularly sensitive.

Important to drink
Some general tips are to make sure you drink plenty of water as vomiting increases the risk of dehydration. The health guide recommends drinking more than usual, especially if you have a fever. If you find it difficult to drink, you can use a tablespoon to get the liquid in. Then, when you start to feel a bit better, try eating small portions.

Here’s what to eat and drink when you have winter fever:

  • White bread
  • White rice
  • Blueberry soup
  • White bread
  • Boiled white fish
  • Boiled potatoes and carrots
  • Products containing lactic acid bacteria, such as yoghurt and film milk
  • Salty snacks
  • Bullion soup

What NOT to eat or drink when you have winter colds:

  • High-fiber foods
  • Coffee
  • Fatty foods
