Hello. Thanks for writing to HCM.
sore throat does not requires eating any specific types of foods, though you must avoid very spicy food and cold drinks/ beverages as they might irritate the throat further. vitamin C is known to be beneficial . So as a home remedy for soothing the throat you can take juice of a lemon in lukewarm water with a teaspoon of honey, 3-4 times a day. It should help relieve you of the deep ache in throat. you can have any type of preferably home cooked food.
take care.
