You may gargle with diluted vinegar. Than eat cooked rice, apple or hard bread which may push it down. Ideally it should be examined by a doctor, as this has been stuck since night as this can infect and cause sores in throat. There is also a possibility of a diverticulum in the throat where food can lodge. Examination by a doctor would be able to look for the possibility.
