What foods should you eat if you have the flu?
If you have the flu, what kind of food should you eat?

Eat anything you feel like eating and make sure you have a lot of fluid inside you... eating soup would be the best I think.

Porridge. It has sufficient carbohydrates, has chicken(is good for colds) and is liquid form. Drink lots of water also. Ginger beer also helps.

It rather depends on the symptoms you're having. If there's nausea, vomiting or diarrhea (which some people get) then stick with the BRAT diet until stools are formed and solid and for 24 hours after that. Bananas, plain steamed Rice, Applesauce and dry Toast. If the symptoms are all respiratory, eat what you like. Water should be a component for either one.

Mild foods, if you can keep it down. Applesauce and chicken soup come highly recommended. And when my husband is ill, I make him a tea with ginger in it to help calm his stomach. Another thing that will stay down easily- if you take it slowly- is crushed ice and Coke Classic.

Only drink liquids until the flu passes

Keeping up your fluid intake is vital. We loose more fluid through sweating with a temperature and expiring (breathing out) through our mouths when we are fighting off a flu bug
Best way to measure your input is enough is by looking at your urine as you go to the toilet. If it is clear, then you are well hydrated. If it is dark yellow, then you need to drink more.
Eating comes secondary. MAke up soup or a stew and have that. You can put in some nice foods and meats or chicken and pasta and rice and get a good meal out of it. It will be soft and easy to drink if you have a sore throat.

Soft foods like applesauce (if one likes it), and soup such as chicken soup. Above all else it's very important to stay hydrated by drinking a lot of clear liquids (especially when it comes to the nausea). I found that drinking 7 Up or Sprite if I don't have fresh ginger to make a tea from can help with the nausea to settle the stomach.
