Hello!
Thanks for the query.

Outside unhygienic foods,street foods and stored or refrigerated food should be avoided.You can give cooked chicken or fish.

Typhoid patients may remain carrier for long period and they can transmit this infection to other family members.Hence all hygienic precautions should be taken.

Hope this helps you.
Thank you.

Hi,

Thanks for writing to health care magic.

After complete recovery you can have the diet you want to.

Of course it is always better to avoid fried food as a general advise to any body.

Hope this helps.
Take care.

Hi friend,
Welcome to Health Care Magic

YES
After recovery, there is no specific contra-indication to any food.
Smaller quantities at more frequent intervals put less strain on the system...
Beware! Canned foods may be infected!

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck

HI,
u can take fish or chicken. but better in gravy form & better avoid in fried form.
Becoz sometimes typhoid may affect liver severely , so digestion of fat might be affected in that cases just like in viral hepatitis(jaundice) and ulcers may be there in intestine during typhoid fever.
Thank u
