    Citrus fruits. And drink their juice. You need the vitamin C. In fact, consider taking a complete multi-vitamin tablet with meals. I take one at least twice a day and hardly ever get sick.

    The BRAT diet

    without going into lots of detail these are easy for your body to digest when it is battling invaders-apples surprised me as it is hard on my tummy so I drink apple juice.

    Chicken Noodle always makes me feel better but my understanding is that the fluids that it provides is what is beneficial. Get Vitamin C and B Complex for sure!

    Hope ya feel better

    Whole grains

    And lots of it (except meat/eggs, which tend to be fatty and should be eaten in reasonable quantities). This is the healthiest diet available, sick or not, in my opinion.
