Brief Answer:
Visit a hospital

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thanks for your query.

Breathlessness cannot be related to food intake unless there is some food particle stuck in the throat.

The other cause could be her pre existing breathing problems if she had any, has flared up.

If the breathlessness is severe and not regressing over time, I recommend her to visit a nearby hospital to be examined and managed accordingly.

Wish you good health.
