Some Do’s and Don’ts to Selecting Foods While Having Strep
What can you eat when you have strep throat? Soft foods and frozen treats are recommended to soothe the pain of strep throat. Avoid alcohol and spicy foods which can dry out your throat and lead to further irritation. If you are congested, consider passing on dairy products which can contribute to mucus production. Also steer clear of sugary and acidic foods.
