Hello, welcome to HCM. Your child has been asked not to take fruits as his body immune level is low presently and fruits can be containing bacteria and harmfull agents which body can take care of in normal circumstances but will find it difficult to handle presently. So you should avoid them till the time your child's immune level recovers. Wish him good health.
