Frequently vomiting after meal. Catches cold frequently. Guide

Hi I have a four year old daughter.

The problem is ever since her early years she vomits on very frequent occassions after a meal. This is generally due to the cold and mild phlegm that she develops. we have seen many doctors. Where some say she has a mild tonsils inflation others say it is a gastro intestinal reflux. But the problem still persists. She vomits or is nauseated almost in every meal when even with a mild bout of cold. And this cold occurs in her every 15 days. Please guide
