When I have a cold or flu it's really one of the only times I crave comfort carbs: something from my childhood (it's more about the comfort than the carbs) a bowl of egg pastina with freshly grated Parmesan and butter.

It started me thinking about comforting, healthy and useful items you could put together in a care package for a friend or family member or save for the next time the creeping crud comes creeping. Here's a few items I came up with and I made an extra set so...
