Pediatrician 's  Response
it ma be viral hepatitis. go for liver function test.Foods that are rich in glucose are recommended in jaundice. These help the liver cells to regenerate and also provide the required nourishment for the body. Fats are to be taken in reduced quantities. Deep fried foods & alcohol are to be avoided.. For viral hepatitis, causing jaundice, there is no definitive treatment. Only supportive measures are given. The virus is slowly eliminated from the body with the help of the immune system.

Hi
Welcome to Healthcare Magic Forum
It is most likely that this is jaundice. His diet should be very light, and bland. Salt and pepper are not restricted, but garlic, ginger and other spices are to avoided for some time. Diet should be light, small and frequent, like dalia, moong dal- khichdi, juices, mashed vegetables, milk , lots of fluids and meals on demand. Fat should be avoided here.
Takecare.
