Hello Jois, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Vomiting that occurs occasionally when a child who has a cough and runny nose is sometimes a normal thing to happen because the child's cough reflex is still not perfect so that it triggers the gag reflex to help expel phlegm or nasal mucus that flows into the throat.
However, if your child is still nauseous and vomiting containing leftovers (can be mixed or not with mucus), the complaint can be caused by the body's response to infections that occur in the respiratory tract, stomach acid disease, or gastrointestinal infections, so it is recommended to be examined further by a doctor to be evaluated on his current physical condition.
When a child is sick, it is often enough that the child becomes more difficult to eat because of the discomfort he feels due to the disease, but the child must still be endeavored to eat nutritious foods that contain enough carbohydrates, proteins, fats, vitamins and minerals that are balanced.
There is no specific reference regarding what foods the child should consume, you can still provide food that is consumed daily by him, but avoid giving dry snacks such as chips / fried foods and foods / drinks that contain ice for a while until your child recovers.
If it is felt helpful, it is also permissible to provide supplements / syrups to increase the appetite of children who are sold freely and given the dosage according to what is on the package.
If your child has recovered, still having difficulty eating, with weight that has also declined / has not increased at all, check with a pediatrician for further evaluation of your child's nutritional status and how further therapy should be done.
I hope this helps.
