Of course, if we get sick, we dont want to eat because it's lessen our appetite. But if i got sick, i want to eat noodles or biscuit with condensed milk on top of it. It's weird, but i love it. What food you like to eat when you get sick? Or you must prefer to rest?

While I'm being sick all I can handle is Canada Dry Gingerale. Something grandma did and it worked. After my vomiting is gone I start out with a cup of weak tea and a poached egg. That seems to pull me through every time.

When i get sick i eat yoghurt, soup with cooked rice and pulses in it. I also eat fruits and drink lot of fluids. I eat less during this period. And no junk food for me. So it works for me.

First of all whenever i fall sick i feel like eating everything other than biscuits. I prefer to eat spicy food especially. But our family doctor prescribes to eat only breand and buiscuit and that is the one that i hate the most, but what to do for the betterment of my health i am forced to eat :(

If I am sick, I only want to drink Milo thick without sugar and milk. If I am sick in bed, I only want to sleep. So far, nothing else seems to entice me. Oh yes... Fried heaty stuffs are often good for me. If I get sore throat, I eat durians or curry puffs. Like what the old chinese saying 'Use poison to purge poison".

The good thing about fruits is it helps us get back in shape faster and quicker. Fruit juices will greatly help also.

Although I am certain it is in no way good for me when I am feeling sick, my favorite thing to have is fish sticks and mashed potatoes. I think it was something I asked for when I was little, and my mother would bring it to me, so even today it feels like "comfort food." Most of the time when I am feeling ill, I have very little appetite, and just tend to drink a lot of orange juice.

When I'm sick I eat noodles and hotdog. I also take lots of water. Then I watch TV the whole time. It's the only time when I can watch TV without pressure that I have to sleep otherwise I'm gonna wake up late for work or something like that hehehe

I usually like to eat light food, like a soup or a fruit. We really are not in the mood of eating when sick.

When I was little and sick my mom always got me a banana shake from the local chicken place and a chicken coron blu from Arby's. When my daughters get sick they like cinnimon toast and 7-Up. I remember when my oldest daughter was little and she was at her dad's. He called me freaked out because she wanted her sick toast and he didn't know what it was. I told him and he was like I don't have that. I said well you better go get it then if you want her to be happier. He was not pleased that there was a routine for his sick daughter but he went and got it because she kept crying I want my sick toast and my mom.*L*

I like to drink hot tea with honey if I have a sore throat, or a glass of 7-up for an upset stomach. Most times to eat, I like to have chicken soup with a little rice. it is filling and not to heavy.

When I am sick, I normally do not have appetite for anything. Seeing food like rice or noodles make me feel worse. If I'm really hungry , I'll make myself a cup of Milo (a kind of chocolate drink) and break a couple of plain biscuits into it and eat it.
