Cold symptoms: Starve a fever or feed a cold – fact-checked

0

What you eat and drink when you’re sick can change how you feel while you’re recovering, but it won’t speed up your recovery time.

Vicks’ experts said: “The old wives tale that you should starve a fever and feed a cold doesn’t have a hint of truth to it.

“Only one thing is certain: your body needs proper nutrition at all times, but especially during cold and flu season.”

So, what you eat and drink is important and you should never starve a fever (especially if you feel well enough to have a healthy appetite).
