Diet plan for jaundice should include good amount of calories deriving mainly from Carbohydrates( cereals) and fruits and of course some amount of Proteins as well.
Fruits like Banana, Apple, Pears, Musumbi, Orange etc are a good source of potassium If your aunt cannot eat a whole fruits you can give them as juices. Sugar cane juice is very good Liver tonic. Also veg juices like Carrot/ beetroot juices will be of good help in healing.
Cereals could be given in the form of Kanji... Rava porridge, Ragi malt,Rice porridge and soya porridge will provide good calories hence strength to her..
