I have never been forced to eat when I was a child thanks to my dear mother, who luckily believed in the body’s intelligence. Therefore, not forcing a child to put food into his body seems the most natural thing to do, especially when a child is sick.
I believe the body needs to focus his energy on repairing itself when it is sick, not on digesting heavy foods.
One day at school, where they force kids to eat their lunch, my son vomited just after lunch. The following day, I went to see the person in charge. I could not make my point to the school staff. They were afraid my son would faint if he did not eat.
What is your opinion my friend my sister? Peace and love and blessings to you!
