Welcome to HCM
Freshly set Curd can be give during cough,cold and fever..there are certain myths regarding food in our society but as a medical practioner we don't avoid any food stuff during cough.prefer food at room temprature and avoid refrigerated cold food and drinks.also prevent your child from cold and consult pediatrician.
Wish u a good health.
