  • Do not force your child to eat if he /she doesnot like it, just stop and offer food at small intervals
  • Make sure they get plenty of rest
  • Dress them in light weight clothes and just cover them with a light sheet
  • Keep the child’s room airy, well ventilated and maintain the right temperature, not too cold or too hot
  • Sponge the child’s body over with lukewarm water if high. This will refresh them and help bring down the temperature.
