As winters approach, sore and cold throats will definitely tighten their grip on us. It’s the worst feeling when you’re sick, irritable, and can’t eat anything you crave either. In this case, there are some foods that will heal you in no time and give comfort to your irritated throat. Have a look and note them down!

1. Chicken Soup

Remember when as a child you got a sore throat and someone would always make chicken soup? Well, they were right! Chicken soup really does help fight colds and infection. Doctors have discovered that chicken soup triggers white blood cells that defend against infection. Moreover, the hot fluids increase the movement of nasal mucus, helping you breathe easier.
