Appetite stimulant s are not advisable in normal children, if her weight and height are adequate as monitored through growth chart, not to worry. Continue breastfeeding, give your family food 3-5 times a day, u can give her cows milk. If there is nasal blockage use saline nasal drops 1 drop in both nostrils every 4 hourly. It's normal for children to reduce eating during illness, she should be OK once her cold and cough subsides.
