"Is there some special diet, when my child is ill?"
There is no special diet as such and moreover appetite goes down to 25 percent of the normal intake...
Diet should be healthy and palatable, not the one that child doesn't like at all.
Khichdi and dalia are best diet during most childhood illnesses. However, you can give potato fries and home made ice creams to make child's diet interesting during course of his recovery.
Give plenty of water in form of ORS or soups, but no juices whether fresh, canned or in tetra packs.
Often diarrhea worsens with sugar- loaded juices or cold drinks, more so these are empty calories with no nutritive value.
