Turmeric powder is one of the most common items used when treating bronchitis at home. You can give one teaspoon of this powder to your children two or three times daily to help fight the symptoms. It works best on an empty stomach, or first thing in the morning or at bedtime. It is best to mix it with a warm cup of milk in order to administer it.

You can also heat coconut oil and apply it to the chest area to help relieve symptoms. Applying a hot towel to this same area as well as the back can also help provide relief from the symptoms as well.

In order to help soothe a sore throat and to clear out mucus, chicken soup is one of the most popular foods to eat when a person has bronchitis. You can make this even more beneficial by adding ginger and garlic to the soup. Giving your child hot tea is also something that can help with the symptoms related to bronchitis.
