Brief Answer: hi Detailed Answer: Thanks for your follow up. Yes shivering is associated with fever. In fluids you can give water,vegetable soup,milk. Give rice porridge,dhalia,mashed potato. Wait for another 24 hours and in case fever persist or he becomes lethargic get him examined by pediatrician. Hope this helps. Take care.
