Can you eat biscuits when you have fever?

You can, but you may not feel like eating, depending on whether your fever is a sign of having the flu. Many people, when they are ill with the flu, lose their appetite; or they have problems with nausea. Biscuits are often very heavy, and when your stomach is upset, something lighter, like toast and jam, might be easier for you to digest. But if your only symptom is fever and you have no problem with nausea, there is no reason why you can't eat a biscuit or two.
