Hi. Welcome To HealthcareMagic

If the antibiotic course is finished, and the child has no fever, you do not need to repeat ant tests. If there is still fever, you need to repeat the widal titers and blood culture and may have to change the antibiotics.

Regarding diet, you can initially use bland diet. less spicy diet. Afterwards, you can resume normal diet as he/she tolerates.
